Re: NSHashTable with weak objects crashing

Hi all,

I’ve opened a pull request with some very simple tests for the NSHashTable/NSMapTable weak object support:
https://github.com/gnustep/libs-base/pull/80

Unfortunately they are failing on the CI, so it seems that the issues described below are not specific to our setup. I also confirmed the tests pass when run against Apple’s Foundation.

Does anyone have knowledge of the weak pointer support in GNUstep and could take a look at this?

Thanks!
Frederik

Hi David,

While replacing the hash table, I managed to turn it into a reproduceable fault on at least one machine.  The bug is quite subtle:

We have a map from objects to weak reference structures.
The weak reference structure points to the object.
When we delete the last weak reference, we delete the object from the map.
We delete the object from the map using the object as the key.
But by the time a weak reference is deallocated, its object pointer has been zeroed...
...so we always remove a random element from the map and leave a dangling pointer in the table.

Should this already be fixed on the latest libobjc2 master?

Going back to my original issue about NSHashTable with weak objects, I’m still seeing it crash with the latest libobjc2 master and also using the arc-cxx branch.

It reproduces quite easily with the following code (compiled with ARC), which crashes either directly in addObject: on the first invocation (when using weakObjectsHashTable), or in -allObjects on the second or third invocation (when using hashTableWithWeakObjects).

static __strong NSHashTable *_hashTable = nil;
static __strong NSObject *_test = nil;
- (void)testHashTable
{
@autoreleasepool {
if (!_hashTable) {
_hashTable = [NSHashTable weakObjectsHashTable]; // or hashTableWithWeakObjects
_test = [NSObject new];
[_hashTable addObject:_test]; // crash 1
} else {
_test = nil;
}

NSLog(@"HashTable %@ (_test: %@)", _hashTable.allObjects, _test); // crash 2
}
}

Similarly, NSMapTable crashes as well in the second invocation of the following function, although I’m not sure if this is the same root cause as the hash table crash:

static __strong NSMapTable *_mapTable = nil;
static __strong NSObject *_test = nil;
- (void)testMapTable
{
@autoreleasepool {
if (!_mapTable) {
_mapTable = [NSMapTable strongToWeakObjectsMapTable];
_test = [NSObject new];
[_mapTable setObject:_test forKey:@"test"];
} else {
NSLog(@"obj pre: %@", [_mapTable objectForKey:@"test"]); // crash!!!
_test = nil;
NSLog(@"obj post: %@", [_mapTable objectForKey:@"test"]);
}

NSLog(@"MapTable %@ (_test: %@)", _mapTable.dictionaryRepresentation, _test);
}
}

I’m pasting the stack traces below. I’d appreciate if anyone can shed some light on this.

Thanks!
Frederik
