Code 101

Here we hope to put a few tests for you to see if you are fit in C to fiddle around with the gtk-gnutella code. They are taken from our experiences with the pitfalls of coding on the project.

Question

The code below extracts the user agent from the headers of an upload. The gui displays the useragent string or "..." if u->user_agent is NULL. Unfortunately there is a bug in that piece of code that caused the GUI of our test user to always display "...". Can you locate it?

 1: /*
 2:  * Extract User-Agent.
 3:  *
 4:  * X-Token: GTKG token
 5:  * User-Agent: whatever
 6:  * Server: whatever (in case no User-Agent)
 7:  */
 8:
 9: token = header_get(header, "X-Token");
10: user_agent = header_get(header, "User-Agent");
11:
12: /* Maybe they sent a Server: line, thinking they're a server? */
13: if (user_agent != NULL)
14:     user_agent = header_get(header, "Server");
15:
16: if (user_agent != NULL)
17:     faked = !version_check(user_agent, token, u->ip);
18:
19: if (u->user_agent == NULL && user_agent != NULL) {
20:     if (faked) {
21:         gchar *name = g_strdup_printf("!%s", user_agent);
22:
23:         u->user_agent = atom_str_get(name);
24:         g_free(name);
25:     } else
26:         u->user_agent = atom_str_get(user_agent);
27: }

Question

While running gtkg compiled with Gtk1 support we found that the code below contains a memory leak. There are two places in the code where new memory is allocated. Those are on the lines 18 and 19. Can you find out where the leak is?

 1: /*
 2: * on_popup_downloads_push_activate
 3: *
 4: * All selected downloads fallback to push
 5: */
 6: void on_popup_downloads_push_activate(
 7:    GtkMenuItem * menuitem, gpointer user_data)
 8: {
 9:     struct download *d;
10:     GList *node_list, *data_list = NULL;
11:     GtkCTree *ctree_downloads = GTK_CTREE
12:         (lookup_widget(main_window, "ctree_downloads"));
13:     GtkCTree *ctree_downloads_queue = GTK_CTREE
14:         (lookup_widget(main_window, "ctree_downloads_queue"));
15:
16:     gtk_clist_freeze(GTK_CLIST(ctree_downloads_queue));
17:     gtk_clist_freeze(GTK_CLIST(ctree_downloads));
18:     node_list = g_list_copy(GTK_CLIST(ctree_downloads)->selection);
19:     data_list = downloads_gui_collect_ctree_data(ctree_downloads,
20:         node_list, TRUE, TRUE);
21:
23:     for (; NULL != data_list; data_list = g_list_next(data_list)) {
24:         d = (struct download *) data_list->data;
25:
26:         if (!d) {
27:             g_warning(
28:                 "on_popup_downloads_push_activate(): row has NULL data\n");
29:             continue;
30:         }
31:         download_fallback_to_push(d, FALSE, TRUE);
32:     }
33:
34:     gtk_clist_thaw(GTK_CLIST(ctree_downloads_queue));
35:     gtk_clist_thaw(GTK_CLIST(ctree_downloads));
36:     g_list_free(data_list);
37:     g_list_free(node_list);
38: }
