           Summary: segfault in pgp when gpgme_strerror() returns a non
                    utf-8 string
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.8.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Plugins/Privacy
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: patfbsd at davenulle.org

(FreeBSD9 / Claws-mail 3.8.0 / gpgme-1.3.1 / gnupg-2.0.19)


When gpgme_strerror() returns a non utf-8 string, this string makes claws-mail
to crash latter, when the string is outputed by the glib function

This happens if the locale used is not UTF-8 (I use fr_FR.ISO8859-15), gpgme
uses the current locale but glib seems to require good UTF-8.
Example when reading a SMIME mail that fails with the gpgme error "protocole
non supporté".

Note the 'Invalid UTF-8' and the error message in ISO-8859-15. The code is:

    65 gpgme_verify_result_t sgpgme_verify_signature(gpgme_ctx_t ctx,
gpgme_data_t sig, 
     66                                         gpgme_data_t plain,
gpgme_data_t dummy)
     67 {
     68         gpgme_verify_result_t status = NULL;
     69         gpgme_error_t err;
     71         if ((err = gpgme_op_verify(ctx, sig, plain, dummy)) !=
===> 72                 debug_print("op_verify err %s\n", gpgme_strerror(err));
     73                 privacy_set_error("%s", gpgme_strerror(err));
     74                 return GINT_TO_POINTER(-GPG_ERR_SYSTEM_ERROR);
     75         }

A workaround here is to start claws-mail with locale set to UTF-8.

I don't have a fix to suggest, but this
http://mail.gnome.org/archives/balsa-list/2007-March/msg00000.html is similar
to this problem and might help.

Best regards.
