Description User image Jesse Ruderman 2007-09-18 18:43:25 PDT
Steps to reproduce:
1. Load:

###!!! ASSERTION: Too few bytes in input: '*aSrcLength >= 2', file /Users/jruderman/trunk/mozilla/intl/uconv/ucvlatin/nsUCS2BEToUnicode.cpp, line 229

It looks like nsUTF16ToUnicode::Convert then proceeds to read past the end of the string while trying to determine its endianness.

I don't know whether this is a bug in nsUTF16ToUnicode::Convert or a bug in the caller.

nsUTF16ToUnicode::Convert, I think. Callers of converters shouldn't need to know about the byte structure of encodings.

I'm in two minds whether the Right Thing To Do here is to fail silently or return an error code, but I think the error code is preferable.

Is this ready for checkin? If so, please nominate for approval1.9?
Comment 4 User image Simon Montagu :smontagu 2008-03-01 14:10:04 PST
Does this need approval? It was marked as blocking 1.9 and I could have checked it in before but since the change is so small I was waiting to check it in together with bug 317126 when that got reviewed.
