Description Stephane Cerveau 2013-06-07 08:12:24 PDT
A tab of object returns sometimes an undefined object when this tab is accessed by a var containing the identifying string. This bug occurs only when the assignation is done in function in the first line. This bug only occurs on ARM-V7 platform with JIT enabled.


function setShader(name){
   currentProgram = shaderProgram[name];

In this case name is always the same string 'string'.

CurrentProgram will be sometimes undefined.

It does not fail when currentProgram= shaderProgram['string'] 

It does not fail if an instruction is done before like

var iterator;
function setShader(name){
   currentProgram = shaderProgram[name];

Test case. Jellyfish webgl

Here is a test case.
This test case allows to reproduce the bug on ARM-V7 platform. On my platform the bug occurs after 68 iterations average.
An alert should pop up when the object in initShader.js/SetShader is undefined.
Unfortunatly i havent been able to clean up the code to reproduce the same kind of issue.
