Bug Description

When a program wants to change attributes of a bug, it must first read one
attribute of the bug; otherwise the program fails with an exception from deep
inside Launchpadlib.

This script triggers the error:

from launchpadlib.launchpad import Launchpad
launchpad = Launchpad.login_with("bug-repo-syncer", "production")

lp_task = launchpad.load(
lp_bug = lp_task.bug

#Un-commenting this makes the error go away.

lp_bug.title = "Test bug"
lp_bug.description = "A bug for testing Launchpadlib."

#Fails with:
#Traceback (most recent call last):
# File "", line 8, in <module>
# lp_bug.title = "Test bug"
# File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/
#site-packages/lazr/restfulclient/", line 692, in __setattr__
# if not self.lp_has_parameter(name):

#site-packages/lazr/restfulclient/", line 206, in lp_has_parameter

#line 564, in _find_representation_definition

@Eike this bug isn't present in bug-repo-syncer - it may be affected by it, but it will be entirely fixed when launchpadlib is fixed - so I'm removing your task. If you want a bug on bug-repo-syncer to track your working around this, I suggest using a separate bug.

affects: bug-repo-syncer → null
no longer affects: null
