#1136 closed defect (fixed)

move-memory! bug similar to #1135

Reported by: sjamaan Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 4.10.0
Component: core libraries Version: 4.9.x
Keywords: Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


We need to check all the uses of memcpy, to see if there are any left which are wrong and should really be memmove due to the possibility of overlapping memory regions.

Attached is a patch which adds a test, which somehow succeeds with the current code. However, by adding this test I found another bug in the types.db code: it uses w2b which doesn't exist in chicken.h but only in lolevel.scm. This macro does exactly the same as C_bytes, so I've rewritten it to that.
