Looks like there are two bugs here. There's the low-level code that underflows in set_all_true(), but there's also the question of why we're trying to send a zero-byte-length bitfield.

Looks like the latter bug is triggered in peer-msgs.c's tellPeerWhatWeHave(). It looks to see if we have-all, have-none, or have-some. We don't even have the metadata for this torrent yet, so at this point we should be have-none. However, tr_cpHasAll() is returning true because of the vacuous case: it has all of the 0 pieces that it knows about.

tr_cpHasAll() and tr_cpHasNone() should take magnet links into account.

I get a Déjà vu pertaining to client: BitTornado?? 18.33.0-->#4935 and this ticket . It seems to me more than an insignificant chance that the same (misidentified) client: BitTornado?? 18.33.0 and uTP are both involved again. Perhaps reporter at hasn't updated per:

Ideally I'd like to pull an "official" fix from libutp's repo, and I can't tell
the context of this patch wrt it being experimental, proposed, etc... but
regardless, it looks like an improvement over trunk, so I've landed it in
r13646 for 2.74.

r13646 The developers at transmission put a heartfelt effort into solving these type of obscure bugs and for this it is much appreciated.

Downstream's ticket was reported against 2.80, so reassigning version here

The following crash was submitted to me by a friend who experienced the crash using v2.82, while removing a selection of just added magnet links and regular torrents:

Refer to #5168 and #5449 and the new peer-msgs code for clues to the root cause of this issue.

Note that both sendBitfield() and tr_cpCreatePieceBitfield() assert (tr_torrentHasMetadata()), so how could the changes made to completion.h in r14151 be the solution?

  • tr_torrentHasMetadata() only checks for fileCount > 0.
  • sendBitfield()[r14114] allowed tr_cpCreatePieceBitfield() to be called with a byte_count of 0.

It seems to me we shouldn't be sending/receiving bitfield/piece data if we don't have all the metadata (tor->info).

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

comment:9 Changed 8 years ago by jordan

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

This reopening confuses me for several reasons:

  1. The backtrace seems to have nothing to do with this ticket. It's crashing while flushing cached piece data, and magnet links will have no cached piece data because they can't download anything until they get the metainfo and know what there is to download.
  1. The links to bugs #5168 and #5449, which seem to be unrelated to each other and also unrelated to this ticket.
  1. Bullet point #1 insinuates there's a problem with tr_torrentHasMetadata()'s implementation of testing for fileCount > 0 but I don't see the issue?
  1. Bullet point #2 is a red herring, sendBitfield() is only used by tellPeerWhatWeHave(), which calls it if-an-only-if we have piece data for the torrent, which is impossible unless we have metainfo.
  1. The summary assserts "we shouldn't be sending/receiving bitfield/piece data if we don't have 'all' the metadata" ... (1) I don't see where we're sending or receiving piece data without metadata, (2) I don't see where we send bitfield data without metadata, (3) We can't control whether or not peers send us bitfield data before we have metainfo, (4) I don't see what any of these has to do with the backtrace you provided?

Re-closing this ticket as fixed because this all appears to be invalid. If there's something that ties all these pieces together please reopen with more information.
