Fatal error getTupleforKey

Post by Chris Walton »

I have just generated the above error on one of my scripts, but the bug reporting mechanism does not send the bug - the progress bar goes the full extent to done, then an error box comes up saying it could not be sent. I attach the following:
Error message stack
Original script
This one is a peculiar one - I have been using the script for some time, and have only recently started generating this error but am unaware of any change that would have caused an error.

That is a peculiar one. I've not known the bug reporting mechanism to fail before, and there isn't much to fail in it that wouldn't result in a more informative error message. Unless, possibly, it ran out of heap, stack space, or some similar low-level resource. The "Error reporting.txt" log suggests it had been looping for a while, so that could have used up RAM or stack.

Did the crash occur when you tried to run script.txt on a new database, on a database that was already populated, or had script.txt run successfully and then you tried to subsequently execute a query?

If it's the latter, do you recall what the query was?

Error occurred when populating new database; and when partially populating database - doing all the steps up to, but not including the population of the BDT_predicate, and then doing that step caused the problem. There was no evidence of looping - the log I sent you was the complete log. I cannot speak for the reporting problem - when I first tried to report it, I could not do so because I was having comms problems rather than anything to do with Rel. At the same time when I did report it, I had been trying to send the message several times.

Attached is all the information that appeared in the reporting window when I repeated the error. This is the info regarding the original error not the reporting one.

Thanks - I'll see if I can duplicate it.

I have resolved this issue, though I cannot reliably replicate it. The problem was caused by multiple errors. I had put a capital S in place of a lower case one, in an identifier that was case sensitive: the text contained "...." inside the defining quotes: and (probably) the stack had been corrupted by previous errors and difficulties.
