I found a bug that can make renoise crash :
get the app here : Duplex : A Better Mixer App
In the file LCD_view.lua, change the value of track_index to 0 in line 42.
run the app, now adding a track to the song will make renoise crash
I know setting this value to zero is a bug in itself, but it shouldn’t be possible to crash renoise with a script, right?
Thanks for reporting bystrano.
Basically the problem is:
while true do
The never ending loop will at some point show a “Script not responding - Terminate?” message, which will in this case cause a crash, because the notifier stopped inserting the track. The track is only half-way added in Renoise while the dialog is shown.
This will be important to solve because this can ruin the document and can also happen with a few other list notifiers. Unfortunately this is quite hard to solve, so I’ll need a bit of time to do so.
OK I understand the problem now. Sorry for posting 1000 lines of code for a problem that can be described so quickly…
Thanks for your reponsiveness, and for having such high standards with debugging! I imagine the whole “no script should be able to crash renoise” objective must be a very hard to achieve…
Finally fixed (for the next Renoise 2.6 build, not in RC3)…
