Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 62196
Intermittent Konqueror & Bugzilla Form Submit errors
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:22 EDT
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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).
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.
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.

Timeout in http KIO slave. I've fixed it in 3.0.0-6.
(kdelibs 3.0.0-6, that is).
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.
Bug 62936 is a duplicate of this bug. Another confirmation that the form
submit bug of Konqueror is not yet fixed.

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.
Re-tested: Still appears to be broken in Red Hat Linux 7.3.
Bug 64554 is a duplicate of this bug.
I haven't seen this behavior in Limbo. Could this have been the same issue as
