In a series of patches I just pushed to the "xemacs" repo, I've given
a facelift and new energy to a comatose test suite in
tests/reproduce-bugs.el, and renamed it to reflect its main purpose:
reproduce-crashes.el. Test for non-crash bugs of course should be put
I haven't yet verified that these bugs don't affect current versions
of XEmacs. I would appreciate it if people would run through the
tests and let me know whether any of them seem to produce buggy
behavior. Note that since XEmacs has changed a lot since these were
written, there may be bugs in the tests themselves. I'd appreciate
hearing about those, too.
If you know how to crash XEmacs, please add tests to the file and
I've also added some primitive facilities to track status and query
the database about these bugs. Suggestions for improvements (better
yet, patches) would be very welcome.
Vin: Since all of the bugs in the database, except #11, are pretty
ancient, you might want to add this to 21.4. Let me know.
