bug#5710: 23.1; Fatal error in format

From: Andreas Politz
Subject: bug#5710: 23.1; Fatal error in format
Date: Fri, 12 Mar 2010 14:22:44 +0100
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.1 (gnu/linux)

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

(format "%16.s"

makes emacs abort.  This reflects the following situation in editfns.c :

total = 5 + 5 + 1 = 11
field_width = 16
precision = 0
thissize = 0
actual_width = 16

thissize += max(0,16 - 16) = 0
total += 0 + 4 = 15

I think it is clearly a mistake to substract the width of the
whole argument-string from the field_width, regardless of how
much of it will actually end up in the result, depending
on the precision mod.

That's the basis for the following patch.

            thissize = precision[n] ? CONVERTED_BYTE_SIZE (multibyte, args[n]) 
: 0;
            actual_width = lisp_string_width (args[n], -1, NULL, NULL);
+            if (precision[n] != -1)
+              actual_width = min(actual_width,precision[n]);
        /* Would get MPV otherwise, since Lisp_Int's `point' to low memory.  */
        else if (INTEGERP (args[n]) && *format != 's')

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/share/emacs/23.1/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
