collisiontraverser crash in latest cvs

CollisionTraverser myTraverser = CollisionTraverser("ctraverser");

This gives me a crash, with the current CVS version, the crash is actually in a memcpy call used by the constructor of basic_string. Just wondering if it’s a known issue. It’s built with --optimize 1.

call stack:

It appears that CollisionTraverser doesn’t have a good copy constructor defined. But I wonder if you had really intended to invoke the copy constructor. Did you really mean to write something like this?

CollisionTraverser myTraverser("ctraverser");

Although it looks very similar, it actually means something completely different to the compiler: the above statement invokes the CollisionTraverser constructor only once. Your statement invokes it twice: once to create a temporary in-line instance, and again to copy it into myTraverser.


Ah, yeah, you are right. It’s like that because it used to be a pointer so I just removed the “new” and the “*” and I overlooked that. Anyway, this doesn’t change anything, it still crashes. Also, it was working fine with last week’s code so I assumed it was related to a recent commit, which is why I was asking, but if nothing related to that has changed, it must be something else so disregard it.

Well, a crash in the basic_string constructor is one symptom of inadvertently mixing a debug and non-debug build. Are you sure you’ve got the right libraries to match your executable?


You are right, it was that. I must have something wrong in my debug profile, cause it works with --optimize 3. Thanks.
