I am getting this crash only when running all the test suite; I can't reproduce on a single isolated test.

Everytime, it occurs in glDeleteTextures in the GL library. The fun thing is that this is true with both OSMesa and the nvidia driver.

With OSMesa, I get this backtrace:

With the NVidia driver, I get a similar backtrace: crash in fDeleteTextures() a few frames into the NVidia driver.

I have then added static 'object count' variables to GLContext and WebGLContext and printed some debug info in the ctor/dtor of these classes. Here is the end of the output before the crash:

First of all:
 - I have tried calling glIsTexture to check it's a valid texture. Result: exact same crash in glIsTexture.
 - I have added redundant MakeCurrent() calls just before the crash point, that made no difference.

So, I have looked into the OSMesa source code:

static INLINE void *
_mesa_HashLookup_unlocked(struct _mesa_HashTable *table, GLuint key)
   GLuint pos;
   const struct HashEntry *entry;


   pos = HASH_FUNC(key);
   entry = table->Table[pos];
   while (entry) {
      if (entry->Key == key) {   //// <--- crash here
         return entry->Data;
      entry = entry->Next;
   return NULL;

Here's some info obtained by GDB:

(gdb) print entry
$1 = (const struct HashEntry *) 0x100000001
(gdb) print pos
$2 = 4
(gdb) print table->Table[pos]
$5 = (struct HashEntry *) 0x7f080c9eb440
(gdb) print table->Table[pos]->Next
$6 = (struct HashEntry *) 0x100000001

So here we are: this code expect a null-terminated linked list, and instead our list has a bogus node 0x100000001 before our texture is actually found.

Very strange: can't reproduce the crash with the nvidia driver anymore.

ok, can now reproduce with nvidia driver, backtrace:

A patch allowing to reproduce the crash, at least for me with OSMesa, can be found here:

valgrind log for a run of the webgl test suite with osmesa

Here's Valgrind output for a whole run of the webgl test suite, with OSMesa, with that crashy patch applied.

As you can see, valgrind doesn't report any crash. While, running without valgrind, I do get the crash.

The best explanation that I can find is that many tests are timing out when run under valgrind, possibly skipping the crashy part.

valgrind log for a run of the webgl test suite with osmesa, hitting "VALGRIND INTERNAL ERROR"

Here's the output of a new valgrind run, this time with higher timeouts on the tests so that they don't time out.

It ends in "VALGRIND INTERNAL ERROR" which according to certain gurus means that I trashed the heap.

So, the crash was introduced by my patch in bug 586811. The new version of this patch fixes it.

Will file another bug about fixing the uninitialized-value errors.
