PROPOSED FIX:memory corruption and bad aliases

Reported by: cegner@… Owned by: xi
Priority: high Component: pyyaml
Severity: blocker Keywords: long, bad reference


Libyaml 0.1.2 fails to serialize python longs correctly. The pure python implementation produces correct output. This is a major issue for us since we make heavy use of yaml and the pure python implementation is too slow for our needs (not a criticism, just a statement of fact).

I've given this 'blocker' severity and high priority since long is a basic python type. If this is inappropriate, please let me know. When is the next scheduled release of libyaml?

Minimal test case:

>>> import yaml
>>> from yaml import Dumper
>>> from yaml import CDumper
>>> yaml.__version__
>>> # libyaml doesn't have __version__ support but is 0.1.2

>>> d = { 'hourEastern': 20L, 'hour_eastern': 20L }
>>> yaml.dump( d, Dumper = CDumper )
'{hourEastern: &20 !!python/long 20, hour_eastern: *id001}\n'
>>> yaml.dump( d, Dumper = Dumper )
"{hourEastern: &id001 !!python/long '20', hour_eastern: *id001}\n"

As far as I can tell, there's some sort of memory clobbering going on in _yaml.pyx. It looks like using the cython produced pyx_t_5 variable does it or a call to PyObject_repr. Code that should not be able to change the anchor variable in _serialize_node is. I don't know cython well at all and I'm not sure how to hook a debugger up to this.

Okie, I'm not an expert in embedded c or cython, but I think the problem is a dangling pointer in the line of _yaml.pyx:

    if anchor_object is not None:
        anchor = PyString_AS_STRING(PyUnicode_AsUTF8String(anchor_object))

Since the object created by !PyUnicode_AsUTF8String goes away (no reference is maintained, though I don't have a good handle on garbage collecting...), the pointer returned by !PyString_AS_STRING to the ephemeral object's internal buffer is dangling upon garbage collection. It seems that the rest of the code uses the idiom:

    anchor_object = PyUnicode_AsUTF8String(anchor_object)
    anchor = PyString_AS_STRING( anchor_object )

which seems to fix the problem.
