Description Tim Waugh 2010-01-05 08:42:55 UTC
With ghostscript-8.70 on Fedora 12, gs crashes while reclaiming memory after
gdevcups tries to allocate a very large buffer.

For instructions on how to reproduce this problem:

I haven't been able to figure out quite where the problem comes from.
Comment 1 Ray Johnston 2010-01-07 10:20:31 UTC
Marcos will try and reproduce.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2010-03-23 11:30:12 UTC
Setting the RIP_MAX_CACHE environment variable to "128m" works around the problem because the buffer allocation then succeeds.

So it's something to do with when allocations fail due to the space_params having been exceeded.

From the Ghostscript side already fixed in SVN rev 11547. But see my comments in
