Possible design flaw

  • Hi,
    I found a disturbing thing in QXmlPatterns - QPatternist::ItemMappingIterator::next() recursively calls itself, which leads to stack overflow if a XPath query is being done on a relatively large data set (in my example - about 15k xml elements). This is results from a call in qnodesort.cpp:80 (Qt 5.3):

    @Item::List nodes(m_operand->evaluateSequence(context)->toList());@

    The toList() method calls next() and all hell breaks loose. Is there a way to work around this or should I file in a bug?

    I think it is a good candidate for a bug report. "Link":https://qt-project.org/wiki/ReportingBugsInQt.
