Bug Description

Affects stable and trunk builds compiled with lcms2 support, with documents which have color profiles linked based on an absolute path which doesn't resolve on the local system.

Steps to reproduce:
1) launch current trunk (default prefs, new doc)
2) open attached document
3) draw a rect
4) open 'Fill & Stroke > Fill > CMS'
5) select the linked color profile "Fogra27L-CMYK-Coated-Press" from the drop-down list

Expected result:
Inkscape is aware that the linked color profile doesn't exist on the local system, and either warns the user about it, or reverts to <None>.

Actual result: crash

Program received signal EXC_BAD_ACCESS, Could not access memory.
Reason: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at address: 0x0000000000000008
0x0000000104fc25fe in cmsDoTransform ()

- Reproduced with Inkscape 0.48.4 (official package, uses lcms2) and local trunk build on Ubuntu 13.10 (VM, 64bit)
- Reproduced with local trunk builds on OS X 10.7.5 using lcms2 (2.4)
- Stable and trunk builds on OS X using lcms1 (default) do not crash if a missing color profile is selected in Fill & Stroke.
- Neither stable nor trunk using lcms2 output a message to the console about failing to locate linked color profiles (lcms1 does in stable, and did in trunk < 13107).

I believe this might also be a duplicate of bug #1335416. I was able to reproduce the crash with a local 32-bit build under Windows 8.1.

I've attached a patch, my local change notes:

Added null-pointer check before calling cmsDoTransform.
Moved the dirty flag for reseting the color selector so that only valid color profiles are loaded.
Unfortunately this still allows the color profile to be shown in the CMS dropdown and selectable, but it will now no longer do anything if it's invalid.

Partially tested on Windows XP with Inkscape trunk rev. 13847. Unfortunately all my local color profiles seem to be invalid (they all crash without the patch), and thus I can't test with a working one...

Thanks, there seems to be an issue when loading these in Windows, particularly in ColorProfile::set. This code looked complex, as I don't know the URI stuff, so my patch only dealt with the worst case if the file could not be loaded. As a local hack to get it to load in Windows I had added the following after fullpath was initialized in ColorProfile::set:

 if (fullpath.size() == 0) {
  fullpath = this->href;

But I don't feel this is a true fix since I don't know what the URI handling code is really doing. As it begins to complicate the reproduce and verification of the above patch, I understand if it's not acceptable. This needs to be fixed eventually to actually load profiles, but maybe it's better to be tracked as another issue?

Even after loading the profile, the color selectors act strangely, I believe that behavior is the same as bug 632023.

Patch tested successfully (no crash) on OS X 10.7.5 with Inkscape 0.91+devel r13847, lcms2 2.6.

Same observations as noted in comment #4 wrt the CMS dropdown menu in 'Fill & Stroke' (color profile still listed in the dropdown, menu item doesn't revert immediately to 'None' if the defunct profile entry is selected but no longer crashes either).

Patch ported to the current trunk (src/widgets/sp-color-icc-selector.cpp moved to src/ui/widget/color-icc-selector.cpp), and tested again successfully on Xubuntu 16.04.

I'm going to create a new report for the dropdown issue, and commit the patch for 0.92.

Thanks for your help, Mark!
