It appears to be a problem with this specific user/journal, as I have been able to view other Livejournal blogs (for example capriuni.livejournal.com) without any crash, but attempting to log in (login/zip) or just to view that journal without logging in (visit/zip) both cause crashes.

Logging in via the mobile site is fine (and enables me to view 'friends-only' journals in the standard desktop view), but results in a crash if I subsequently attempt to view the inbox in standard view...

Tried using Netsurf v1967, which definitely used to work: this seemed OK for a while then crashed (1967/zip). It looks as if something has changed about the site within the last week.

Tried again with v2127 on Iyonix: again site seemed fine for a while, then crashed.
However, I have had no trouble (touch wood) in accessing the same pages using Netsurf v2117 on this ARMini (RISC OS 5.21), so the issue would appear to be possibly hardware/OS specific.

Still crashing regularly when attempting to edit/add entries to this journal. This [snipped - last 10Kb] log is from Netsurf v2387 on ARMini, so it's not hardware specific: the error is always a segmentation fault, and the stack backtrace has been the same in every log I've looked at recently:

Still crashing with relentless reproducibility on both Iyonix and ARMini after editing/posting journal entries. Here Netsurf v2585 has just crashed on the ARMini (RISC OS 5.21) after doing nothing but logging in and performing a single edit.

Is this still occurring with 3.3? I have added some form debugging code to teh latest CI build so can you try with that?

Unfortunately (see issue ID 0002296) it is currently impossible to log into LiveJournal and edit an article at all in order to provoke the bug reproducibly for test purposes :-(

Here's an example of this free_unlocked() crash that I managed to get with the latest Netsurf (Dev 2689) while posting a new article -- as opposed to editing one.
Note that the title of this bug is now obsolete: the problem appears to have nothing to do with the actual Livejournal inbox but to have migrated(?) to other parts of the site...

And another one (dev 2721): the problem appears to be with form_free_control.

I have committed a fix for form control destruction, could the OP please re-test with a recent CI 0002736 or later
Harriet Bazley


Harriet Bazley (reporter)

Tested with CI 2744 - I didn't get it to crash, but unfortunately most of the features which reliably provoked this site to do so are no longer accessible with Netsurf as of the last month, due to changes to the back end resulting in log-in/cookie issues.
I'll keep an eye on it, but in the absence of a fix for the latter I'm seeing a lot less of Livejournal anyway :-(

I think - touch wood - this is now fixed. I haven't seen any more of these crashes since this change.

Confirmed fixed in 3.4 release
