Bug #34456 [PATCH] pspell extension segfaults with aspell 0.50.x

Status: Closed Package: Pspell related
PHP Version: 5CVS-2005-09-10 (CVS) OS: *
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2005-09-10 14:49 UTC]
The pspell extension segfaults with (at least) aspell 0.50.x. Although aspell 0.60.x doesn't, there is a problem in PHP code.


Reproduce code:
all pspell_config_xx() segfault.
pspell_config_mode($p, PSPELL_FAST);

I've used pspell extensively with 0.5 lib and never seen a crash pertaining to the demonstrate code.

I've tested with aspell 0.50.5 and it produces the following (without my patch):

My patch fixes these problems. And it makes sense. PHP is passing a Speller* pointer, where it should be passing a Config* to pspell_manager_config().
I've "wasted" a couple of hours tracking down this bug in the aspell sources, and I think that this bug might not happen in all setups, depending on the compiler (because of some magic C++ upcasting).

It crashes for me too. I also have (a|p)spell 0.50.5
