Subject: Re: [PATCH] Corrects an Abort Trap: 6 error with completions.

Message-ID: <9699781D-9A21-4C65-86E7-50156F934C08@7stalks.com> (raw)

Hi Junio,

First - Thanks so much for your reply!  

	The original cause was simply running a non-related command.  Specifically I was trying to build some internal software.  Our internal software uses a build build tool from perforce called jam (http://www.perforce.com/resources/documentation/jam).  Similar to the make build tool this looks up a Jamfile (ergo Makefile) and does the recipe.  The issue is that running `jam` fatally aborts right from the start with an unintuitive `abort trap: 6` error.  

	As you can well imagine figuring out what was causing this was pretty difficult - because both the error was cryptic and so unrelated.  I started backing out my environment until I was able to narrow this down to the bash_completions file.  Further investigation finally nailed it on the concatenation of the  `branch. remote.` line 2165.    In summary when the lines were joined it showed the error, when they were on separate lines everything processed as expected.

	Again - my only change was to shift them (  branch. remote. ) to two separate lines.

HTH
