Description opendarwin 2007-12-10 20:41:23 PST
Overview Description:
If you type in a text field in a WebView, the Edit/Undo menu item becomes enabled.  However, if the WebView is the subview of a tab view item, and the tab view item is removed, deallocating the WebView, the Undo menu item still remains enabled.  If you then try to undo, the app will crash.

Steps to Reproduce:
(1) Build and run the attached UndoCrash sample Xcode project.
(2) In the text field below the WebView, enter the URL of a page containing a text field, e.g., <http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/changeset/22065>, and press return to load the page.
(3) When the page has finished loading, enter some text in the Search text field.
(4) Notice that the Edit/Undo menu item is enabled.
(5) Press the "Remove Tab" button to remove the tab.
(6) Notice that the Edit/Undo menu item is still enabled.
(7) Type command-z to undo.

Actual Results:
The application crashed.  The backtrace is below.

Expected Results:
The Edit/Undo menu item should not be enabled after the tab is removed, and the application should not crash.

Build Date & Platform:
MacBook Pro Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X 10.4.11.

Additional Builds and Platforms:
MacBook Pro Intel Core 2 Duo, WebKit revision 28605 (TOT).
iBook G4, Mac OS X 10.4.11.

Attached sample Xcode project as UndoCrash.zip.

Comment 5 Mark Rowe (bdash) 2007-12-10 20:59:08 PST
Definitely looks like the WebView isn't cleaning up after itself.
Comment 6 Alexey Proskuryakov 2007-12-10 23:59:33 PST
Reproducible crash -> P1.
Comment 7 Alexey Proskuryakov 2008-07-28 01:43:29 PDT
Still crashes with r35406 under Mac OS X 10.5.4.

Comment 9 Eric Seidel (no email) 2008-11-10 16:32:12 PST
It seems that the WebView just needs to call [NSUndoManager removeAllActionsWithTarget:self] before it dies.

Comment 10 Eric Seidel (no email) 2008-11-10 16:40:38 PST
Hum... probably not actually quite that simple.  See:
void WebEditorClient::clearUndoRedoOperations()
Comment 11 Eric Seidel (no email) 2008-11-10 16:44:57 PST
I expect what should happen to fix this, is that we should abstract this workaround into a category method on NSUndoManager (Something like _webkit_removeAllActionsWithTarget:) and then call that method instead from WebEditor client... or find some way for WebView to grab at the WebEditorClient (where would that even be?) during its dealloc.  Should be relatively simple to trace through, but I'm going to look at other p1s for the moment.
Comment 12 Justin Garcia 2009-01-29 01:21:29 PST
Cannot reproduce on 10.5.6 w/ WebKit r40304.
Comment 13 opendarwin 2009-01-31 20:42:31 PST
This does not seem to be fixed. I just reproduced the crash on 10.5.6 with r40468.
