Description Sriram Neelakandan 2009-03-11 05:16:46 PDT
CANVAS Text APIs always crashes on  arm-target.
It works fine on the PC though.

I have narrowed down the issue to a TextRun copy constructor not working in GraphicsContext::drawBidiText().
may be due to my arm-linux-gcc (GCC) 3.4.6.

Patch coming soon

Fix CANVAS Text API crash

Can't be right.  Loses information (all the other fields), is used elsewhere safely, and seems to be bitwise copy safe.  I think the bug must be elsewhere.

George you are right ! 

I found a weird fix for the problem

       TextRun subrun = run;
+       printf("Hello\n");
        subrun.setText(run.data(bidiRun->start()), bidiRun->stop() - bidiRun->start());
        subrun.setRTL(bidiRun->level() % 2);

Just that printf, Fixes the crash !
I am sure the compiler is upto something :(
