I fixed a couple of bugs blocking bug 339128 on trunk. IMHO the patches should be ported to 1.8.1. I don't see any point in cherry picking the patches all of them lead to crashes. I will do the patch today or tomorrow so that it can be pushed towards branches.
Created attachment 232193 [details] [diff] [review] patch against MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH this is the promised patch which I think should go on 1.8.1 and probably also on 126.96.36.199
Boris could you have an eye on this while I am away (till 2006-08-21)
Bernd/Bz how long has this been on trunk? Any risk for the branch?
Variable amounts, from "as of this morning" for bug 343087 to "at least a month" for some of the other bugs. There is probably some risk, but I'm not quite sure how much; the exact regression tracking and whatnot has been happening in the bugs this one depends on... I do think we should let things bake on trunk for a few days before doing anything with branch, but the most recent change also looked reasonably safe to me, at least as this code goes.
One has to weight the risk. This will/should fix also the other branch blocking bugs that block bug 339128 and do not have a patch till now. With the patches I can't reproduce them. http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsview2.cgi?diff_mode=context&whitespace_mode=show&file=nsTableFrame.cpp&branch=&root=/cvsroot&subdir=mozilla/layout/tables&command=DIFF_FRAMESET&rev1=3.650&rev2=3.651 is not included in the patch but should be applied otherwise VC6 will complain. A good way to estimate the risk would be to ask Jesse to run the tests from bug 339128 and see whether he sees regressions.
Comment on attachment 232193 [details] [diff] [review] patch against MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH a=schrep for drivers.
I had to edit the diff to remove the fixes for bug 339315 and bug 302911, which had already landed on the branch. With those removed, this applied cleanly and all. Checked in on 1.8 branch.
sayrer just landed a bustage fix for these changes -- for for loop scoping on Windows.
Comment on attachment 232193 [details] [diff] [review] patch against MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH I guess this should go on the 1.8.0 branch but I did not get enough baking on trunk, I fixed only today one of the regressions
Comment on attachment 232193 [details] [diff] [review] patch against MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH I had some discussion with dveditz, where I was more conservative with taking this onto 188.8.131.52. My main concern was that I did not do enough testing and together with still visible asserts. From a stability point of view this patch highly desirable especially when combined with the patch in bug 350081 and the regression fix ofr bug 347796. Just in case that the 184.108.40.206 release will slip asking for inclusion into 220.127.116.11. If I missed the boat this is definetly 18.104.22.168 material.
Comment on attachment 232193 [details] [diff] [review] patch against MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH approved for 1.8.0 branch, a=dveditz for drivers We're slipping to tomorrow, please land today.
re [need testcase] Jay, you will not get a testcase, this bug accumulated the patches from the dependent bugs into one single patch as they partially superseded each other. The testcases are in the dependent bugs, this bug is verified once all dependent bugs are verified.
