Description of problem:
When playing gnibbles, with the 'levels in random order' option selected,
gnibbles will occasionally exit unexpectedly attempting to load a new level. The
message on the console is:

Ack! Couldn't load level file /usr/share/gnibbles/level000.gnl

It's reproducable consistently when playing many, many games. The levels are in
random order, you know :)


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gnibbles
2. Choose the levels in random order option
3. Play a couple hundred games

Actual Results:  Game exits unexpectedly.

Expected Results:  A new level should be loaded.

Hmm, is this an excuse to spend an entire day playing gnibbles? ;-)

Test patch to get rid of level 000

This patch is untested as I haven't figured much out about rpm yet, but it
seems to be the only place where current_level could be set to 0.

Comment 3 Miloslav Trmac 2002-12-18 17:28:45 UTC
		tmp = rand () % MAXLEVEL;
		tmp = rand () % MAXLEVEL + 1;
This should be
+                       tmp = rand () % (MAXLEVEL - 1) + 1;
Otherwise you remove 0, and add MAXLEVEL

Comment 4 C Duvall 2002-12-18 20:24:16 UTC
MAXLEVEL is defined as 26 in the sources I have, and there is a level for it.
Other places in the source it does rand() % MAXLEVEL + 1, validly. It looks like
valid levels are 1-MAXLEVEL, inclusive.

Comment 5 C Duvall 2002-12-19 15:25:34 UTC
Looking further, this bug seems to be a dup of bug 52900 at bugzilla.gnome.org.
Same trivial patch was submitted as fix by someone else, seems to be fixed now

Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-19 15:55:36 UTC
Thanks for looking into this. We should have the fix in the next release, then.
