Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-1022:

Robert, perfectly fine, simpler than explicitly throwing an exception when LenLeft < 0.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Database Core, HTTP Interface
>    Affects Versions: 0.11, 0.11.1, 0.11.2, 1.0, 1.0.1
>         Environment: all
>            Reporter: Filipe Manana
>            Assignee: Filipe Manana
>             Fix For: 0.11.3, 1.0.2, 1.1
>         Attachments: multipart_1_0_x.patch
> Up to 1.0.1, it was possible to loose the identity length of an attachment that was compressed
by CouchDB. The only case known where this happened was after doing a local to local replication.
This was found and fixed recently in 1.0.x with a patch from Juuso Väänänen, COUCHDB-930.
> However, existing databases created with versions up to 1.0.1, have the attachment identify
length lost forever. For this cases, the multipart/related or multipart/mixed APIs used to
GET a document, return attachments stubs with a "length" field matching the length of the
attachment in compressed form, and the part of the multipart stream that contains the attachment,
contains it in uncompressed form.
> This poses a serious problem to the CouchDB multipart parser, an essential part used
by the new replicator that's likely to land on the 1.2 release. Without this fix, it may not
be possible to do pull replications, with the new replicator, from versions 0.11.0, 0.11.1,
0.11.2, 1.0.0 and 1.0.1 ONLY when the source database was the product of a local to local
replication (and there are attachments stored in compressed form, as described by COUCHDB-930).
> The following patch fixes this issue by always sending the attachments in compressed
form. It's meant to be applied against branches 0.11.x, 1.0.x, 1.1.x and trunk.
