Bug Description

When I shift-left click the top rounding handle of a rectangle the application crashes systematically. I can do any operation on both handles (dragging, ctrl, right click...) successfully apart from this very specific one.

This patch should fix this bug. It removes the update_knot call from RectKnotHolderEntityRX::knot_click. It is not used in RectKnotHolderEntityRX::knot_click either.

*second method name should have been RectKnotHolderEntityRY::knot_click. sorry.

Fix tested and confirmed with Inkscape 0.48+devel r9914 + inkscape-680520.diff on OS X 10.5.8:

Shift+click on the Rx knot now resets both radii for the rounded corners to 0 (instead of crashing), as does Shift+click on the Ry knot.
Ctrl+click on the Rx knot sets Ry to the same value (instead of crashing), as does Ctrl+click on the Ry knot set Rx to the same value (creating symmetrically rounded corners).

No regressions found so far with regard to (not) updating the Rx knot.

Relevant keyboard shortcuts that triggered the crash (Rx knot):

Ctrl+click set the corner circular
Shift+click remove corner rounding


Hi Adonis,

Just noticed that Krzysztof has applied five of your patches to trunk. That's much appreciated!

As a consequence though, you can get direct access to our bzr repository to commit your fixes yourself. (At some point in time, way back, the devs agreed on a threshold of two bug fixes for such right)

Just drop a note and we'll get you direct access.

Thanks again,
