Seems the bug somewhere in the Tracker, investigating...

comment:3 Changed 9 years ago by BeSman

Yes, as I think, problem was in the Tracker, since rev 35047 when ShouldShowModel() was added in tracker/FavoritesMenu.cpp , please someone explain me what that function do, when I removed it, bug was disappeared

BeSman, can you please explain what the patch does and why it fixes things? I am lacking the context and have no time to dig into this, thanks!

comment:6 Changed 9 years ago by BeSman

Hi Stippi, that patch simply set fRefFilter to NULL in FavoritesMenu constructor. When I searched where the bug and why Backgrounds crashed, I saw what was changed in the Tracker since 31109 revision(alpha1) and detected what fFrefFilter in constructor have an undefined status, when I set it to NULL, Backgrounds and possible other apps no more crash. Tested on 36601 in Vmware

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by stippi

I can see what the patch does (settings fRefFilter to NULL), but this is still no explanation why it fixes anything. The BRefFilter argument already has a default value of NULL. Either an application is supplying a BRefFilter to the constructor, in which case fRefFilter is assigned to it, or it doesn't, in which case it will be NULL. So how come fRefFilter has an "undefined" status in some cases? Is someone passing a stack allocated one? The SetRefFilter() shows that ownership is not assumed (otherwise the method would leak the previous instance, and the destructor also does not free it). Your patch cannot be the correct solution, but it may point at the real problem. So if you can explain *why* you think this is correct, please do so. hrev31109 is a completely unrelated changeset, please point at the changeset that makes you think it broke stuff. Please prepend the changeset number with an "r", so it is linked in Trac. Thanks!

Backgrounds allocating BRefFilter in ImageFilePanel(), when we click "Favorites" menu, it call FavoritesMenu() function from the tracker, but BRefFilter is still allocated by Backgrounds app, and this is WHY that not NULL...

comment:9 Changed 9 years ago by stippi

Ok, but this just confirms my assertion that your patch is wrong. ImageFilePanel tries to pass a CustomRefFilter instance to the base class, and your patch would just ignore it, because it does not assign the variable of the base class which would store this object, but just assigns NULL instead. Obviously it's not the solution.

comment:10 Changed 9 years ago by BeSman

You`re right my patch is wrong but seems I detected where the bug, when ImageFilePanel pass a CustomRefFilter to FavoritesMenu() and when FavoritesMenu() calls ShouldShowModel() func, which return fRefFilter->Filter(...), on this step app is crash...

comment:11 Changed 9 years ago by stippi

The next logical step would be to add printfs in the CustomRefFilter::Filter() function to track down where exactly it crashes. One possible source of the crash is the "beos_stat" structure which is passed to the method. This is a compatibility stucture that is supposed to have the same size and fields as the old BeOS R5 "stat" structure. It's possible that the binary compatibility mechanism that has been implemented somehow got broken in the meantime, or never worked quite right in the first place, I don't know. One could print the object's size and track whether methods, that are passed this structure are indeed the intended versions, and not the new ones that expect a regular "stat" structure (which is bigger). But other sources for a crash are possible.

Milestone: R1/alpha2R1/alpha3

It seems ShouldShowModel can be called with a model whose node is null. We check this case in hrev36772.
