           Summary: Overlapping memcpy in TestDecoder::reset
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebCore Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: deanm at chromium.org

void TextDecoder::reset(const TextEncoding& encoding)
    m_encoding = encoding;

m_encoding is a TextEncoding, which has a default assignment operator which
will be implemented by gcc as a memcpy.  The following patch:

            Reset text decoder on flush so it does not pass through the BOM
when it is reused.

     return result;

Added a call to m_decoder.reset(m_decoder.encoding());

which means that m_encoding = encoding; is assignment to itself, which is the
equivalent of memcpy'ing with the same buffer as the source and destination,
which is invalid.

I think the solution here would either be to identity check the assignment:

if (&m_encoding != &encoding)

Or to to offer some flavor or reset() which does not reset the encoding.
