XBoard/WinBoard any bugs?

Post by hgm » Wed Aug 28, 2013 12:07 pm

I am planning a new release of WinBoard/XBoard soon. Are there any bugs that still need fixing?

I have had a few reports on bugs that I cannot reproduce at all:
- The NPS printed in the Engine Output window playing an engine on FICS was 100 times too low.
- After creating a variation, and using 'annotate' to revert back to the main line, it was possible to step beyond game end (resulting in boards with white Pawns everywhere).
- WinBoard did not accept a typed under-promotion move.

Has anyone experienced similar trouble?

Today I've stumbled upon a PGN file I cannot open with Windboard 4.7.0 and 4.7.1, it complains with "Illegal move: 29... pv". I cannot see anything wrong with this PGN.

I saw something similar with XBoard under Debian Jessie, though I'm not using FICS. Seems as if last character of the nps does not fully fit into the available space and is being truncated away.

Indeed, you are right! I get this too. Which means I should be able to fix it. It could be a buffer overflow in the parser. Shortening the comment after 29.Kf2 makes it go away.

That is a very good suggestion. This could very well be the problem. I now also got a complained where the NPS was 10 times too low, rather than 100...

I found what the problem with the PGN was. Normally, when it runs out of things to parse in the buffer, it throws away the current buffer contents, and reads a new line from the file into the buffer at the start of the buffer. But when it has just parsed a comment, it has to do a looke-ahead to see if a PGN result (e.g. 0-1) will follow, because that could make the Comment a ResultComment. During this lookahead it might run out of buffered stuff, and append an extra line. But it cannot throw away the the preceding stuff yet, as this is still part of the current syntactical unit. So it just appends the next line to the buffered stuff.

In the given file this happens every time. There are no lines that do not end in a comment. So in the end the buffer fills up, (the file is also unusually long), and input gets clipped.

I added a test now whenever it starts on a new syntactical unit (where it is possible to clear the buffer), to see if the buffer is already more than half full, and if it is, squeeze out the already parsed part. (Don't want to do that on every new syntactical unit for efficiency reasons.) That seems to solve it.

Thanks for reporting!

For a small test I've replaced NPS with just N and recompiled xboard, after that the correct number of nodes was being displayed.

OK, so I suppose the field for it simply has to be made wider. Was this in the GTK or the Xaw build?
