[xml] libxml2-2.6.4 segfault on some SAX regression tests (solaris8, gcc3.4.0)


Huge appologies for sending to you directly, but I've tried a number of
times to send variants of the following message from two subscribed
addresses to xml gnome org, but they are all getting held for
"suspicious headers", including a dummy test message that basically had
nothing in it. Could you redirect this message or otherwise push it
along? Thanks, -Steve


Hi libxml gurus,

I'm experiencing segmentation fault problems specifically with some of
the testSAX regression tests for libxml2 2.6.4 on solaris 8 (some
details below). Otherwise it seems OK. No obvious errors from make.
Googling didn't help, and I can't seem to access the list archives, so I
figured I'd post.
Could anyone suggest either something to try, or things I could do to
generate/supply more helpful details (make log etc)?

Thanks much,

I've tried building libxml2 from scratch myself, and I've also used to
pre-built libxml2-2.6.4-sol8-sparc-local.gz from
http://www.sunfreeware.com to build the testSAX application.  The
results were the same.

For the following subset of test files, make tests shows differences
from expected output (empty test output files). A bit of playing around
indicated that testSAX generates a segmentation fault for these input
files (generally just after a SAX.internalSubset call it seems, if that
suggests anything).
