Description Rob Swindell 2005-02-27 22:12:04 PST
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; (R1 1.5))
Build Identifier: JavaScript-C 1.5 pre-release 6a 2004-06-09

Passing an argument value of NaN to a native C method, which in turn is passed 
to JS_ValueToInt32(), may, under some undetermined circumstances, cause an 
assertion in jsopcode.c, line 1906:

       case JSOP_GETARG:
                atom = GetSlotAtom(jp, js_GetArgument, GET_ARGNO(pc));
                LOCAL_ASSERT(atom); <--- asserting here
                goto do_name;

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build and run Synchronet ( v3.12
2. Access the url: http://localhost/msgs/msg.ssjs?msg_sub=general&message=NaN
Actual Results:  
Segfault (on Linux) or exception (on Win32).

Expected Results:  
Reported an error converting "NaN" to an integer.

Attaching a quick&dirty, but simple stand-alone example to reproduce this bug. Only tested on Mac OS 
Compile: gcc -DXP_UNIX -o nanbug nanbug.c -I<jsinc> -L<jslib> -ljs
Run: ./nanbug nanbug.js
 -> Assertion failure: atom, at jsopcode.c:1864

Comment 5 Blake Kaplan (:mrbkap) 2005-09-28 11:16:15 PDT
I created a very similar function in the JS shell (that just called
JS_ValueToInt32 on its first argument), but could not reproduce this assertion
on Linux with an up-to-date trunk build. I'll try to see if I can get a Mac OSX
box to test this on.
Comment 6 Marius Kintel 2005-09-28 11:25:24 PDT
A comment to the failure to reproduce using a patched JS shell:
Using this script with the program I submitted further narrows down the situations in which the assert 

// Crashes:

// function convert(arg) {
//   test(arg);
// }
// var str = "sdflkj";
// convert(str);

// Does _not_ crash:

 var str = "sdflkj";
Comment 7 Blake Kaplan (:mrbkap) 2005-09-28 11:38:20 PDT
Ah-hah, that does, indeed, assert on Linux, as well.
Comment 8 Blake Kaplan (:mrbkap) 2005-09-28 13:22:28 PDT
It seems that the doesn't like the native frame and starts looking for the
argument in the previous (scripted) frame, but there aren't any arguments to
find there...

That the _decompiler_ doesn't like... of course.

js.c patch to add toint32 test command

I swear I added this the other year, for an older bug reporting the same
symptom. Must have lost it in a laptop migration, or something.

Safe for 1.8b5, just get this (if it passes your review and testing and stuff)
and the js.c change in for me.	Thanks,
