Description Akira YOSHIYAMA 2008-07-02 04:09:19 EDT
Description of problem:
In non-UTF8 environment, (open)motif apprications dump core when 
entry in menu bar was clicked with button2 (middle button of mouse).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.3.0-3.el5

How reproducible:
frequent

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rebuild openmotif demos
2.set any non-UTF-8 locale to LC_ALL
3.run some demo and click any menu bar entry with button2
  
Actual results:
program aborted.

Expected results:
no problem.

Additional info:
Valgrind found a bug in _XmLabelConvert() on openmotif-2.3.0/lib/Xm/Label.c.
Array "targs[]" has 5 room, but targs[5] and targs[6] were set 
because of UTF8_SUPPORTED macro.
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2008-07-02 09:14:51 EDT
This has been fixed upstream:
http://openmotif.cvs.sourceforge.net/openmotif/openmotif/lib/Xm/Label.c?r1=1.11&r2=1.12
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-07-02 09:53:34 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
release.
Comment 3 Akira YOSHIYAMA 2008-07-04 02:51:05 EDT
Thank you for your reply. I have a question.
The upstream fix makes "targs[]" size to 6, but _XmLabelConvert() looks
being able to set targs[6]. Is it ok?
Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2008-07-04 06:40:43 EDT
I also thought about that and contacted upstream.
Comment 6 Thomas Woerner 2008-07-09 11:20:18 EDT
Upstream agrees. The size of targs is now 7:

Comment 7 Akira YOSHIYAMA 2008-07-10 08:23:34 EDT
Oh! ... ok, thank you for your support.
Please apply it for the next rpm release.
