Description Peter Hutterer 2012-11-01 05:43:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Upstream regression in xkbcomp commit 9887842e33174a6e98675b912e419c711dd20c0f. A performance optimization commit caused the read buffer to not be reset on a new file if a parse error occurs and the new scanchar() function keeps returning characters from the old file.

This prevents the symbols.dir directory listing from being generated properly for the xkeyboard-config build. When xkbcomp is called by the build, it is called in the git tree. The Makefiles in that tree cause the above errors.

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

How reproducible:
rpmbuild --rebuild xkeyboard-config-nvr.src.rpm. The symbols.dir should be around 11000 lines.

Direct call
xkbcomp -lfhlpR "path/to/xkeyboard-config.git/symbols/*"

Again, the output should be around 11000 lines. The current truncated output is between 50 and 250 lines, depending on the version of xkeyboard-config.
