#455 crash when confirming invalid filename with enter


Tested in v0.3.13 [r3094] on MacOSX 10.6.2:

1) make sure to have a savegame called test2
2) load test2
3) open the file menu, choose 'save game'
4) enter an invalid filename or chose an existing file and create an invalid filename from it.
5) press enter & see crash (bus error reported on console)

the crash does not happen, if I use the mouse in order to confirm the file name or when I confirm a valid filename using return.

    Ingo Borstel(no elite, sorry), I cannot replicate this problem on my linux. Probably there is problem in some old library(boost?, I have 1.40)

    But I have svn version.

    I'm perplexed. You have my pity Ondrej Riha; time to re-consider my priorities, you might consider to re-visit your arrogant and ignorant attitude.

    Do with this report what you like, probably is OS-X only, Geoff couldn't reproduce it on windows either (though I don't know whether he used enter to confirm the filename). I spent well over an hour, trying to pinpoint and simplify the steps to a reproducable bug in a game I kinda newly downloaded. Thanks for showing me that there are better time usages.

    Please, wait until some Mac OS X developer can test your problem. Or you could download Mac OS X development environment for FreeOrion from Sourceforge and build FreeOrion yourself to test if this bug occured on current svn.

    If my comment was ignorant, sorry. Where I live now there is no von.

    If you wish to be called somehow, OK(to describe family name). But it only means that some your predecessor did some important thing for your country and you can be proud of it and be called von. But it doesn't mean you are more important than other people, only people have chosen to remember your predecessor.

    I wasn't using enter before, but trying it now produces the same result: Invalid file name popup. I'm also using boost 1.40 in my own build, so that might also be part of the reason why I don't see the reported crash. Thanks for investigating.

    Please keep bug report comments on-topic.

    I can't reproduce this in either the Linux or the Win32 version.
