Bug report #708

QGIS crash on incorrect GRASS vector maps

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:10767


When browsing the available vector maps in a mapset,
QGIS crashes if it lists a vector map which is broken for whatsoever reason (also broken in GRASS). QGIS should
just skip such map and not get killed by it.

Loaded /usr/local/lib/qgis/lib/qgis/libwfsprovider.so
Loaded /usr/local/lib/qgis/lib/qgis/libwmsprovider.so
error_routine (fatal = 1): Cannot open existing vector <random_buf@neteler> on level r2

Test case (Spearfish):

g.copy vect=roads,myroads

Now delete the 'coor' file:
rm spearfish60/YOURMAPSET/vector/myroads/coor

open QGIS and scroll the available vector maps and
it will crash once it reaches 'myroads'.

This also happened if a DB link to an external DB was lost, so it would be good to have this problem trapped.

This is much more critical issue than it seems. Since QGIS tends to corrupt GRASS vectors (#550), this bug is very likely to crop out for anyone using QGIS to edit his GRASS vectors.

#2 Updated by Markus Neteler over 16 years ago

Does this persist? AFAIK there was a workaround this added for 0.9.0 (G_fatal_error() behaviour, see GRASS-dev ML discussions).

#3 Updated by Martin Dobias over 16 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Ah, this is exactly the same problem as with #110, I'm closing this too.
