Summary: repeatable crash when zoomed in and time shifting
Version: CVS Trunk
Noticed a situation that will repeatably crash audacity.
Here's the steps that will produce it. Note that nyquist
has nothing to do with it, I can do this with any other
sound file - mono, stereo, whatever. This is just a self
contained duplicatable way to demonstrate it.
Skip to Start (to get a cursor at zero)
Click 'Zoom In' 12 times (should see about the first 11 or 12 samples)
Click 'Time Shift Tool'
Place mouse cursor near zero and while holding down the left mouse button,
slide the cursor as far to the right as you can - go off the audacity window
if you can, bring it back to near zero, slide it back off to the right as
far as you can, bring it back to near zero, and keep repeating until you
get a seg fault. Sometimes it seg faults as you go to the right the first
time, sometimes the second time, but it should not take too many.
Doing this in gdb causes a hard lock up, had to switch console and
killall gdb to get things back. Could not get my gdb prompt usable again,
so all I could come up with is shown below.
Reporters note: Sometimes you will have to zoom in more than 12 times to produce
