#7736 closed bug (fixed)

Browsing back to a rotated image crashes ShowImage

Reported by: humdinger Owned by: leavengood
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/ShowImage Version: R1/Development
Keywords: GCI2011 Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: yes Platform: All


This is hrev42282.

  • Put a few images in a folder
  • Open the first image and rotate it (ALT+R)
  • Browse through the next image (CursorDown)
  • Browse back (CursorUp).
  • Crash

You may have to browse back and forth a few times. Also, when doing that bigger images (5 megapixel photos), the rotated image gets very distorted. Here's the backtrace:

This is very easy to reproduce.

To make matters worse when using (as described in mmlr's blog post) the crash doesn't happen at all. In fact the rotated image just becomes a 1x1 black image. Also I see no debug output in the syslog.

Axel, mmlr?

Haiku revision: hrev42211 it is a bug too. When you rotate an image you can see next image but after next image it crashes . System: Haiku hrev1-alpha3 on VMware workstation 8 on windows 7 32 bit

I've reproduced this on hrev 43524. With a handful of screenshots, I got distortion on a 768x1024 image, and then a crash the next time I went back to it. After quitting and reloading the images, going back to the first image I had (screenshot 1) it loads a rotated picture of the window that I had when I was taking screenshot 3.

(GCI-2012 Participant) Haiku revision: hrev44702. Still valid. Depending on the filesize, if the image is small, it will distort, showing features of another image in the same folder, until it crashes. If it is big enough ShowImage will just crash. System: Haiku R1-alpha4 on Virtualbox 4.1.20 on windows 7 64 bit

The patch can fix a lot of crashes reported in other tickets.

comment:8 Changed 6 years ago by siarzhuk

I can confirm that this patch fixes some issues with moving between images and rotating them sporadically. I'm not upstreaming it ATM because I'm not so flyent with ShowImage code and it is looking so tricky... May be someone more familiar with this stuff approve it? Thanks.

A simple explanation...

If fBitmapOwner isn't set, the invocation of _DeleteBitmap deletes fBitmap instead of releasing the reference (fBitmapOwner).


	if (fDisplayBitmap != fBitmap)
		delete fDisplayBitmap;
	fDisplayBitmap = NULL;

	if (fBitmapOwner != NULL)
		delete fBitmap;
	fBitmapOwner = NULL;
	fBitmap = NULL;

ShowImageView::_DoImageOperation(ImageProcessor::operation op, bool quiet)

	fBitmap = bm;


After that you have an invalid pointer stored in ImageCache.

P.S. Same problem if attribute "ShowImage:orientation" is present.
