Description James Bourne 2005-08-01 13:54:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
While updating a template in wordpress (http://www.wordpress.org/) I enter "__(" then press right arrow and firefox segfaults.

I have collected a core, and obtained a backtrace, register dump, and frame dump which I'll be able to attache to this report.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open firefox
2.go to wordpress and login as the site admin
3.select presentation then theme editor
4.select default theme and go to the main template
5. where it says the_content('Re add __( after the bracket then press the right arrow

Actual Results:  Firefox segfaults

Expected Results:  the text should be changed and the cursor should move.

Additional info:

We've seen something similar to this before but that was not this reproducable.  As this is a crash in glibc (*__GI___libc_free (mem=0x1) at malloc.c:3401) it may be a security issue...

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-07-18 13:22:16 EDT
Distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported; could
you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently supported
distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out
to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If after a
month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this bug as

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-28 10:37:34 EDT
We haven't got any reply to the last question about reproducability of the bug
with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
have new information that would help us fix this bug, please reopen it with the
additional information.
