Description Sammy 2005-06-20 10:59:57 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux; X11; en_US) KHTML/3.4.1 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
True also with 3.3.4-14. 
When I try to print the default start page, which is the FC4 release notes, from 
konqueror it trys to print infinite number of pages (print to postscript flle), which 
I have to kill. 
Printing other web pages to postscript file worked fine! Must be some kind of a  
font problem in FC4 release notes. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start konqueror 
2. print the default page to postscript file

Comment 1 Ngo Than 2005-06-21 08:19:45 EDT
it seems a bug in kdelibs.
Comment 2 Anton Guda 2005-06-24 11:17:35 EDT
It seems to be a bug (156977) in qt3/gcc4 interaction. 
Namely: QLocale toString(double) coversion bug. 
it seems to be fixed in qt-3.3.4-14, but broked again in -15. 
This bug lead to bad conversion : double(14) -> "13.:" 
If need, testcase may be sent. 
P.S. Really it's a gcc4 bug ;-( 
Comment 3 Sammy 2005-06-24 11:40:22 EDT
I just test qt-3.3.4-14 from FC4 and it has the same problem. -14 fixed another problem 
with postscript printing but not the infinite loop problem. 
I'll check that bug # you mentioned. I also just rebuilt the kdelibs and kdebase rpms 
from the latest SVN 3.4 branch and the problem is still there. 
Comment 4 Sammy 2005-06-24 13:39:03 EDT
Since it is possible to print most documents except a few I tried to look into the FC4 index.html 
file. If one removes the css related stuff from the top of the file (of course the display looks 
different then) then it prints 3 pages and that is it. However, the postscript output is very 
very tiny, like 1pt, on the left side of the page (this is true even with the css stuff in if you 
look at the temp file created in /tmp/kde-user directory when in infinite loop). Does this mean 
it is a KDE bug? 
Comment 5 Sammy 2005-06-24 13:39:56 EDT
PS: the same bug is reported in kde.bugs for another html document. 
Comment 6 Sammy 2005-06-24 15:35:05 EDT
The following patch with the latest SVN no longer goes into infinite loop for

However, the printed pages are tiny fonts such that even when magnified 1000%
still not as large as the original. This is uniqe to a few documents including
the FC4 release notes!

Comment 8 Sammy 2005-06-24 15:46:56 EDT
Sorry, that was not it!

When you turn uncheck "Print header" under the HTML Settings menu under the
print dialog, it does not seem to go into infinite loop.

it's not reproduceable in KDE-3.5.0.
