Subject Test failure (core dump) in testxml - APR-util 1.3.11
Date Fri, 20 May 2011 18:19:26 GMT
I have a pretty stock CentOS 5.4 system, and am attempting to build
APR-Util 1.3.11

Everything builds file, however, in running the tests, I get a core
dump executing "testxml".

Without trying to spam the list - a summary of the dump indicates it
was executing the function "test_CVE_2009_3720_alpha", feeding the
string "\0\r\n" to the apr_xml_parser when it crashed inside

When I moved the call to test_CVE_2009_3720_alpha() to be the LAST of
the calls in the textml() function - it was indeed only that one which
crashed. i.e. - It passed the other 3 tests (test_xml_parser,
test_billion_laughs and test_CVE_2009_3720_beta).

Also, when I changed the text string being passed to "<xml></xml>" -
the test passed and did not crash.

Is this something dowstream of APR/APR-Util which is having this
problem? (It is a new, pretty standard install). Has anyone else seen
something like this? Given the odd string being passed - was this test
put there for a specific reason?

Summary backtrace as follows:
