Description Warren Togami 2002-03-28 06:05:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0; Linux) 
Description of problem: 
When I submit several differnet forms within Red Hat Bugzilla, Konqueror 
displays a page something like: 
Software error:Couldn't get form data at CGI.pl line 1444. 
For help, please send mail to the webmaster (bugzilla@redhat.com), giving this 
error message and the time and date of the error. 
This occurs roughly 50% of the time.  When it does occur I can always click 
back then resubmit, and it works after a try or two. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Konqueror 2.9.9 (Skipjack) and Konqueror 3.0.0 (3-27-2002 up2date). 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Use Konqueror to submit forms while querying or input bugs in Bugzilla. 
2. Occasional error pages, reloading usually brings expected result. 
Expected Results: 
I am guessing that this is an obscure Konqueror problem because it is the only 
web browser that exhibits this behavior in Bugzilla.

Bero mentioned a Konqueror form submit patch being in kdelibs-3.0.0-2 but it has
not yet hit up2date.

Additional Info:  I noticed that the Konqueror w/ Bugzilla bug occurs only when
Bugzilla takes longer than 1-2 seconds to return the result of the form submit.
 In cases where the reaction is quicker than that, the submit is successful.

 For extra data: I validated this bug internally.

Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-03 09:05:36 EST
Timeout in http KIO slave. I've fixed it in 3.0.0-6. 
Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-03 09:05:59 EST
(kdelibs 3.0.0-6, that is). 
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2002-04-05 20:38:19 EST
Tested in Skipjack beta 2    
It still occurs sometimes in Bugzilla when I submit some Bugzilla forms, like  
when I tried to submit this bug update. 
5th attempt...
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2002-04-08 04:06:32 EDT
Bug 62936 is a duplicate of this bug.  Another confirmation that the form 
submit bug of Konqueror is not yet fixed.

Comment 9 Warren Togami 2002-04-08 06:02:29 EDT
This page exhibits similar form submit misbehavior.  Most of the time when I  
first submit the prescription refill form, it comes back saying, "We're sorry,  
but your personalized session on Longs.com has timed out, or you've tried to  
use a bookmark from a previous visit. To protect your privacy, we have our  
site configured to log you off after a certain period of inactivity."  
If I click Back and resubmit the form, it accepts it on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th  
try.  I think this info may help to narrow the problem down a bit more.

Doh.  Sometimes attaching files to Bugzilla with Konqueror has a similar 
errors.  Took several tries to attach some patches in Bugzilla. 
Comment 11 Warren Togami 2002-05-09 06:58:34 EDT
Re-tested: Still appears to be broken in Red Hat Linux 7.3. 
Bug 64554 is a duplicate of this bug.
Comment 12 Warren Togami 2002-08-07 07:05:14 EDT
I haven't seen this behavior in Limbo.  Could this have been the same issue as 
Bug 64236?
