Description

20 years ago
This bug comes from http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6098.

Solaris: first-time startup caused crash, workaround checked in.
mString gets initialized, and then shows up NULL for the write() call.

[comments from 6098]:
nsStringOutputStream is designed to accept a null input string, and apparently
does not handle it correctly. Initializing it with a nonempty string first (one
whose contents are irrelevant...) may work around the problem, but it does not
solve the real problem.
