> I just got caught upgrading from 1.5.0 to 1.7.0 by this. I extend CDVViewController,
but I also use a nib file. The behaviour I was seeing was that the app would crash shortly
after startup. When I used Zombie's in Instruments I could see that the CDVLocalStorage class
was being allocated and then de-allocated straight away and the EXC_BAD_ACCESS error would
be thrown by something trying to access it later on.
> After a long time debugging I realised that the init method was not being called on the
CDVViewController because I was being initialised from a nib and hence:
> -(id) initWithNibName:(NSString *)nibNameOrNil bundle:(NSBundle *)nibBundleOrNil
> was being called. Because init was not being called the commandDelegate was not set and
hence the line which allocated the CDVViewController to registerPlugins would be doing it
on a nil object. If initWithNibName was implemented and just invoked init() this would solve
this issue and hopefully not let others extending CDVViewController get caught out either
