This page in Commons is completely blank, and it's impossible to see pages directly linked to it, such as its history, or pages in any wiki containing a link to this image, as you can see in It's affecting thousands of pages.

Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2007-08-04 09:04:42 UTC
The metadata cache entry for this image contained a bogus entry, triggering a fatal error:

PHP Fatal error:  Cannot access property started with '\0' in /usr/local/apache/common-local/php-1.5/includes/filerepo/LocalFile.php on line 114 

The breaking point is where the cached values are poked back into the object:

                                foreach ( $cachedValues as $name => $value ) {
                                        $this->$name = $value;

The bogus entry had no name:

> return $wgMemc->get('commonswiki:file:0b94e4b5bc7078e5bb837a6110c79610');
array(11) {
  string(4) "9529"
  string(4) "1330"
  string(3) "700"
  string(1) "0"
  string(7) "DRAWING"
  string(5) "image"
  string(7) "svg+xml"
  string(0) ""

Looks a bit odd, eh.

Clearing the cache entry got the image and pages using it working again, but I don't know what would have caused it originally. Possibly a bug, possibly random borkage.

Removed "shell" keyword. No immediate shell action needed.

Assigning SVG bugs to Ariel -- need a cleanup pass to see what's fixed up by a librsvg upgrade, what can be resolved with fixes to our font configuration, what can be fixed on our end, and what still needs to be pushed upstream.
