Description

20 years ago
I was checking links on one of my HTML pages by quickly clicking on each
link and then using Alt-Lft to get back to the previous page.  I did this
for about half a dozen links and then got an Assert:

Line 176 of histbld.cpp in winfe

// Adds a history item to the passed in menu.  Also attaches a numerica
accelerator to the menu item
// if nPosition is less than 10.
BOOL CHistoryMenuBuilder::AddHistoryToMenu(HMENU hMenu, int nPosition, BOOL
bCurrent, History_entry*  pEntry, int nMaxMenuItemLength)
{
	char*  lpszText;
/*>*/	ASSERT(pEntry->title);
	if (!pEntry->title)
		 return FALSE;

<Snip>

pEntry->title is 0x00ee5810, and points to ""

The title pointer is non-zero, so I don't understand why it is asserting.
ASSERT causes a break only when the argument is equal to zero, right?

pEntry->address =
"http://www.genealogy.org/~bryce/Harrington/Benjamin/HarringtonRoyalDescent.txt"
pEntry->referer =
"http://www.genealogy.org/~bryce/Harrington/Benjamin/index.html"

It's possible that the title was filled by a different thread while the ASSERT
dialog was up.  It is a mystery to my why the author of the code believed it
necessary to throw an assert if checking for NULL anyhow.
