#1932 closed bug (fixed)

QueryWatcher crashes on startup when running against a link to a query

Reported by: koki Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/pre-alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


Testing QueryWatcher (QW) in hrev24424.

QW is a little utility app that monitors queries stored in a particular folder (under config/settings), and shows their status in real time.

When trying to run QW with a link to a query (as opposed to a query) in the above-mentioned folder, the app crashes upon startup. This does not happen in Zeta.

To reproduce, place a link to a query in...

/boot/home/config/settings/Nerd Herd Software/QueryWatcher

...and run QW.

QW can be downloaded from here:

Fixed in hrev24442. The crash is a bug in the application, but it was triggered by Haiku not traversing symlinks when using entry_refs.

Thanks Axel! Have not tested it yet, but will do as soon as a fixed revision shows up on the build archive.
