Corrupted ANI file for check (748 bytes, application/x-compressed-tar)
2014-10-27 08:36 UTC, Andrey Tsyvarev

Description Andrey Tsyvarev 2008-02-18 11:27:14 UTC
If one tries to load a corrupted ani-file as an animated image, the following warning is displayed:
GdkPixbuf-WARNING: Bug! gdk_pixbuf loader 'ani' didn't set error on failure

This message means that the loader itself did not set error (GError) properly, although the corresponding function of this loader returned NULL. Instead, the error was set by a wrapper function from gdk-pixbuf that called this loader's function.

The problem with forwarding bugs without including all the necessary information to reproduce the problem.

The archive containing the ANI file isn't available any more. If you can locate it again, please reopen this bug and attach the file here.
Comment 2 Andrey Tsyvarev 2014-10-27 08:34:49 UTC
ANI file has been restored, but problem was disappeared(tried with gdk-pixbuf 2.28).

Now error message is: "ANI image was truncated or incomplete", so it seems that problem has been fixed with r570a8f967cb7c315c4f9746a9094b4b1fc9c8611.
