g.mapsets crash

Reported by: neteler Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: Default Version: svn-trunk
Keywords: Cc:
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Unspecified


When launching g.mapsets in a new mapset which was generated on command line (this is needed to do parallel computations on a cluster):

grass63 ~/grassdata/pat/aqua_lst1km20020706.LST_Night_1km.filt

it crashes:

GRASS 6.3.svn (pat):~ > g.mapsets add=modisLSTaqua,modisLSTterra

Also crashes

g.mapsets -p
Segmentation fault

for possibly the same (to me unknown) reason.

My tries to debug that with 'ddd' failed.

Update: apparently the mapset name LENGTH matters:

grass63 ~/grassdata/pat/abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz123456
GRASS 6.3.svn (pat):~ > g.mapsets -p
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz123456 PERMANENT

grass63 ~/grassdata/pat/abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567
GRASS 6.3.svn (pat):~ > g.mapsets -p
Segmentation fault

echo -n abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567 | wc -c

The new g.mapsets changesets [30031] (longer buffers) and [30030] (use GMAPSET_MAX, GPATH_MAX) did not help.

comment:3 Changed 14 years ago by neteler

As suggested by Paul, fixed as [30032] (

I am not sure yet about the exit status of the function.
