Description Dennis Noordsij 2006-11-10 16:01:18 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          gcc version 3.4.4 (Gentoo 3.4.4-r1, ssp-3.4.4-1.0, pie-8.7.8)
OS:                Linux

(technically not a crash, but just as bad as the app stops responding altogether).

If one opens the following file in Kate, with syntax highlighting (C) and indentation turned on (C-Style), then going to the end of the "while .." line and pressing enter twice, the indenting goes into an infinite loop. Only way out is to kill kate.

Not extensive but perhaps useful:

is the backtrace if one presses ctrl-c in gdb to stop the infinite loop.

I have to attach this file since if I copy-paste the text into kate it doesn't work (spacing/tabs/indenting is done properly from the beginning I guess). You have to open it as is.

Can't attach a file in the initial bug report so bear with me as I add it in a sec once the report exists.

(PS it's not my code :)

Created attachment 18490 [details]
Test case for reported behaviour

Turn on C highlighting and C-style indenting.
Load into Kate.
Go to end of "while" line (should be last line in test case).
Press enter twice.
Comment 2 Philip Rodrigues 2006-11-11 22:44:35 UTC
Confirmed on r601002
Comment 3 Leo Savernik 2006-11-13 00:11:44 UTC
sigh, not wondering why nobody dared to touch the indenter code for years
Comment 4 Dominik Haumann 2006-11-13 10:57:29 UTC
Is that a regression we introduced by our recent changes, or does it exist in e.g. 3.5.0 as well?
Comment 5 Leo Savernik 2006-11-15 20:03:51 UTC
Testcase is wrong. I can only reproduce if no trailing newlines follow. Preparing fix.

@Dominik: I think it is a recent regression. Otherwise, we'd have received such a bug much earlier.
Comment 6 Dominik Haumann 2006-12-15 09:11:49 UTC
Leo: this is fixed with your commit r605213, right?
Comment 7 Marcus Daub 2006-12-15 10:15:17 UTC
Unfortunately it seems to be that I opened a duplicate of this bug-report:
Please have a look.
Comment 8 Leo Savernik 2006-12-15 18:17:46 UTC
Indeed, already fixed for KDE 3.5.6 as of r605213.
