Reduced test case with heavier use of extents

comment:1 Changed 9 years ago by mrk

The problem seems to be with the extents handling.
test-cairo.scm makes heavier usage of extents and crashes qicker.
If no text-extents are used (define no-extents #f), the crash seems not to occur anymore.

Below a new backtrace built with CHICKEN Version, DEBUGBUILD=1

Here is a smaller testcase that reliably crashes on my machine:

(use cairo)
(define t1 (make-cairo-text-extents-type))
(display t1)
(cairo-text-extents-x-bearing-set! t1 1)
(display t1)

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

r25812 fixes this. The cairo wrapping did not unwrap the extents-types and hand the buffer to C but the scheme record, which caused the crashes. Credit goes to Felix and Peter for helping me find this and comming up with a solution.
