gcommit: unknown error "float division"

Bug #221414 reported by GuilhemBichot on 2008-04-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Bazaar GTK+ Frontends

Bug Description

When doing "bzr gcommit", after clicking "commit", I get a popup with title "Unknown error" and saying "float division".
I hacked a bit errors.py so that it prints a traceback to stdout (and REALLY, PLEASE, it would be nice if this was done by default) and the traceback is:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/guilhem/.bazaar/plugins/gtk/errors.py", line 25, in convert

  File "/home/guilhem/.bazaar/plugins/gtk/ui.py", line 63, in update
    self.set_fraction(1.0 * current / total)
ZeroDivisionError: float division

See: pb.update() passes len(nodes) (==0) for argument "total", so this code in ui.py line 63:
    def update(self, msg=None, current=None, total=None):
        if msg is not None:
        if None not in (current, total):
            self.set_fraction(1.0 * current / total)
happily divides by 0.
There is nothing in .bzr.log, in my opinion this proves the usefulness of having show_bzr_error print the traceback to stdout if the error is unexpected. Something like this:
        except errors.BzrError, msg:
            error_dialog(_('Unknown bzr error'), str(msg))
        except errors.PermissionDenied:
            error_dialog(_("Permission denied"), _("permission denied."))
        except Exception, msg:
            error_dialog(_('Unknown error'), str(msg))

It's not rational to do "update(x, 0)", so the root bug is in Bazaar. But this can be worked around in bzr-gtk. Thus, I assign this to both.

(And I hope you mean stderr, not stdout)

stderr would be better I agree. Thanks for looking into this.

What version of bzr-gtk and bzr are you using?

GuilhemBichot (guilhem-bichot) wrote :

I originally had bzr 1.3 (according to "bzr version") and bzr-gtk 0.93.0. But I was hitting https://bugs.launchpad.net/bzr-gtk/+bug/214777 in "bzr gcommit". So, to get the fix for this, I installed the latest branch (as of today). Then I hit the present bug. So my combination is now:
bzr: 1.3
bzr-gtk: latest branch

Two colleagues hit this bug in the last few days.

This is still an issue with the tip of bzr-gtk trunk and bzr 1.5.

The attached patch will fix it (probably not in the best way, but enough to be able to commit).

proposed Adrian's patch to the bzr-gtk list for merging.

This has now been merged. Sorry for the delay.
