"then change value from standard 1m to other for instance type zero" I interpreted that as trying to enter 0 in the scale value

For me it will not let me enter 0. And everything I enter appears to work as expected in build of d36a416 / 2013-11-16 08:50

Crash happens also with me. Should be easy to repro: Add a plane, press n and change the size of x or y and right after you press the enter, blender should crash. Dump available if needed.

Tested again with latest from git. Does not crash anymore.

for me it still does crash blender. I tried r61240 win x64 from

in official 2.69 from r60995 it works and there are no crashes

I could redo this issue as well on OS X, but it does not happen consistently. Went through a full git bisect only to end up at an unrelated commit and figuring out the crash does not always happen with the same steps.

Valgrind shows some conditional jumps based on uninitialized value:

Will look into it.

P.S. Didn't manage to redo crash, but this might be related,.

Developer note.
Found a culptir of that jump caused on uninitialized memory. String is being allocated in stack, and some content is being strcpy-ed on it. Then strtolower is called on the whole string, without taking null-terminator into account.

Here's the patch which solves this issue: but not sure whether it was intended to be able to strlower chars after null-terminator? @Campbell Barton (campbellbarton), maybe you know?

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht), i still failed to reproduce the crash here and don't see any other warnings in valgrind. Mind checking crash with this patch applied?

@Sergey Sharybin (sergey), this crash would be new in rB87cc890aef53c4660448b1125dc0c40a187ae1f2, so worth fixing but probably not the reported problem.

I'm having trouble reproducing the crash at the moment, even with revisions around the date I made the comment. I can try a few more things later, but if someone can test if the issue still exists in the latest Windows builds on that would be useful.

I cannot confirm a crash here with 122e2b4. (Windows 7 x64).

@daniel (midan), please re-test the crash with latest build from buildbot and tell us whether it is still an issue for you! :)

The problem does not occur any more. I checked on Win XP x64, ATI x1900GT and Win 7 x64 , Quadro FX 1700. blender build from 18th december

Thanks for testing, let's assume it is fixed then.
