Summary: [PATCH] getwindowlist (and others?) don't handle utf8
AssignedTo: ldtp-maint at gnome.bugs
ReportedBy: michael.terry at canonical.com
QAContact: ldtp-dev at lists.freedesktop.org
GNOME version: Unspecified
GNOME milestone: Unspecified
I was playing with getwindowlist with utf-8 window titles. I ran into an issue
when the ldtp server responded with a <FILE> element. The file specified was
short a few characters, making it invalid XML.
To test this, open, say, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%A9j%C3%A0_vu in a
browser. Then run a simple python script that runs ldtp.getwindowlist().
I believe that the server provides a <FILE> element only if the list is big
(looking at the code, over 512 bytes?). So you may need lots of windows open.
I have a patch, but I haven't tested it yet. I will try tonight, but wanted to
put it up while I had time. The problem is that client-handler.c seems to use
g_utf8_strlen when it should use strlen. I've attached a patch that is more
uniform about its use of strlen.
