I haven't been following the chat room so I might have missed it, but
I'm surprised there hasn't been any discussion here about the "denial of
service" bug reported at the following URL.


I don't want to jump to conclusions, but we're talking about open source
software here. He could have fixed it himself or at least filed a
Bugzilla report. As far as I can tell he did neither. He does claim to
have reported it to Apple. Is it in radar perhaps?

I'll wait before I say what I think about this guy. I don't want to be
slanderous without cause.

BTW I saw a claim elsewhere that it had been fixed in the nightlies, but
it looks like as of a few minutes ago ensureRows in TOT still has the
problem (it does a resize with a value that doesn't appear to be checked
against any limit).

Does html define a limit on the number of rows in a table?
