EVIL SHAPE file kills QGIS + Xserver

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: nobody
Priority: major: does not work as expected Milestone:
Component: Vectors Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:
Must Fix for Release: No Platform: Mandriva
Platform Version: Awaiting user input: no


This SHAPE file was generated in GRASS 6.3 and exported with v.out.ogr: (3891020 bytes)

It kills the entire Xserver when opening it in QGIS. If possible, please take a look.

thanks, Markus

Works for me in both 0.8 and trunk, bad display however and very slow rendering. Compiling with debug I am.

Have libgdal 1.4.0 and no OTF.

I am using

  • GDAL SVN HEAD from 03 March 2007
  • QGIS SVN HEAD from 03 March 2007
  • qt4-4.2.1-1mdv2007.1
  • geos 2.2.3
  • proj 4.5-CVS

from #gdal:

<FrankW> It appears that the WKT representation of feature 1645 is roughly 10MB - so very very large.
<FrankW> If QGIS is trying to tesselate the feature it is likely effectively hung on it.

Not much QGIS can do then to try drawing the feature. I suggest downgrading to gdal 1.4.0 and see what happens. For me it takes a minutes to open the layer, I guess it depends on the machine you have.

I'm closing this issue please re-open if it doesn't work with gdal 1.4.0.
