segfault when catching an exception from C

Reported by: fperrad Owned by: whiteknight

Cc: Language: lua
Patch status: Platform:


since Parrot 0.8.0 (Exception refactor ?)

Lua works fine when exception comes from PIR (die $S0), but segfaults when exception comes from C (PMC in fact).

$ cat add.lua

print (42 + nil)

When the exception catching in 'docall' (luaaux.pir) is disabled, the result is normal :

$ parrot lua.pbc add.lua

attempt to perform arithmetic on a nil value
current instr.: '&main_10' pc -339049740 ((unknown file):-1)
called from Sub '&main_10' pc 93 (EVAL_1:36)
called from Sub 'docall' pc 53207 (src/lib/luaaux.pir:997)
called from Sub 'handle_script' pc 50993 (lua.pir:303)
called from Sub 'main' pc 50480 (lua.pir:123)

otherwise, parrot segfaults with the following back trace :

Replying to fperrad:

see  http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=59968 same problem with core PMC

The PIR sample in the RT here no longer segfaults, verified in r41388.
