Part 1: Do not call Editable.toString() if Editable has no text.

This is an Android bug. Editable.toString() may randomly crash because SpannableStringBuilder.getChars() does not account for its mGapLength when checking its [start, end) copy range. This seems to happen most often when length is 0 and the end index is very large.
Comment 2 Chris Peterson [:cpeterson] 2012-06-26 10:58:43 PDT
Created attachment 636787 [details] [diff] [review]

Part 2: Selection ranges exclude end index, so write [a,b), not (a,b].

This patch just fixes some typos in comments and log messages.

* part 1 may not be necessary after bug 769520 lands.

Comment 5 Chris Peterson [:cpeterson] 2012-07-09 14:12:35 PDT
I believe my fix for bug 769520 will fix these IndexOutOfBoundsExceptions, but I will watch Socorro topcrashes for a few days before resolving this bug.
Comment 6 Chris Peterson [:cpeterson] 2012-07-16 15:34:34 PDT
The fix for bug 769520, which landed in build Nightly 16 (2012-07-10), should have fixed these IndexOutOfBoundsExceptions. I'm resolving this bug as FIXED because I do not see any IndexOutOfBoundsExceptions in Socorro for builds >= Nightly 16 (2012-07-10).
Comment 7 Scoobidiver (away) 2012-09-06 15:54:18 PDT
It happens after the backout of bug 769520: bp-e1d3866d-b87f-49c4-9797-ec85f2120906.
