Summary: Article display falls into infinite loop
AssignedTo: akregator-devel lists sourceforge net
ReportedBy: aethon gmail com
Version: 1.0-beta8 (using KDE 3.3.2, (3.1))
Compiler: gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-6)
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.8
I was reading the RSS feed from Techdirt.com when I came across a bug. I opened one of the articles and it kept flashing. It appears as if the program was trying to decide how to do the word wrapping and falling into an infinite loop. This only occurred in the "Normal View". Widescreen and Combined had no issues at all.
I then went to ~/.kde/share/apps/akregator/Archive and made a copy of the archived feed to possibly use to make a test case. After making a copy of the feed, I exited the program to restart to establish the bug was reproducible. I got the exact same problem. I then began to cut down the archived feed to attempt to isolate the article causing the problem. I was successful in cutting it down to a specific article.
I will attach the feed I trimmed down too, the original feed I started trimming from, as well as two screenshots. A single screenshot inherently can't show the bug, however if my hunch is correct that it is somehow choking on where to wrap words, the size of the display area then becomes relevant. I was lucky enough with Ksnapshot to get a screenshot of both states between which the program alternated. If it is the word wrapping it would also explain why the bug only appeared in Standard view but not the other two because they all display the article with different widths, unless of course there is something internal to aKregator with regards to the display (I am unfamiliar with the internals of aKregator).
