Description gabriele monfardini 2009-10-23 12:06:12 UTC
Version:           0.9.2 (using KDE 4.3.2)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Unlisted Binary Package

kde and okular packages come from http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu/ under jaunty

okular: 4:4.3.2-0ubuntu1~ppa1~jaunty1

After loading the file pdf okular closes echoing on the console "Bogus memory allocation size"

Using gdb:

The file is handled correctly by xpdf

I'd glad to upload the file pdf if it is possible (I cannot find a way to do it during report wizard)

A pdf causing "bogus memory allocation size"

File that allows to reproduce the bug
Comment 3 Dario Andres 2009-10-23 15:39:27 UTC
Mh, here using:

Qt: 4.6.0 (Qt git branch 4.6 commit 52aef13521af2137db15ee878893f5c5150471e5
        Date:   Mon Oct 12 14:18:51 2009 +1000)
KDE: 4.3.72 (KDE 4.3.72 (KDE 4.4 >= 20091015))
kdelibs svn rev. 1038788 / kdebase svn rev. 1038788
on ArchLinux i686 - Kernel

kdegraphics svn rev. 1037976
poppler and poppler-qt 0.10.7

and with:
kdegraphics svn rev. 1039462
poppler and poppler-qt 0.12.1

The file is opened properly without closing with such an error message.

@Dario Andres
Can you please test also this file?
If you can open it without problems, a.k.a. it is fixed in SVN, it's ok for me to close the ticket
Comment 6 Pino Toscano 2009-10-23 16:26:53 UTC
Please check again the upgrades of the Poppler library of your distro, as this can be another case of bug #211376.

... and even if it wouldn't be bug #211376, the "Bogus memory allocation size" message comes from the Poppler library, and should not cause crashes nor hangs, anyway.
Comment 7 gabriele monfardini 2009-10-23 16:48:44 UTC
I've updated poppler from 0.10.5-1ubuntu2.4 to 0.10.5-1ubuntu2.5

The packet changelog reports of a segfault in Okular with security update (LP: #457985) and refers to CVE-2009-3605

Now the files are opened correctly, even if multiple "Bogus memory allocation size" still appear on the terminal.
