Texture paint after render whilst in texture paint mode causes crash - something in undo code seems to be the cause

Short description of error
Attempting texture painting after a render (whilst in texture painting mode in viewport) causes an immediate crash.

Debugger drops me into the undo code.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Load attached scene
  2. Render (F12)
  3. Paint a stroke on the icosphere
  4. Crash follows immediately on my machine

'Interestingly' if you

  1. come out of texture paint mode
  2. render
  3. go back into texture paint mode
  4. paint a stroke

All is ok.

So it seems issue is caused by rendering whilst in texture paint mode.

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Confirmed, Medium.

I can confirm the crash in undo (in current master -- while 2.79b doesnt have the issue)

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton): this one is for you? (feel free to throw back at me for further investigation, but seems due to recent undo refactor?)

OK - have spent a little time looking at the code.

I know why the crash is happening and have a (probably incorrect!) solution.

Firstly the reason...
In undo_system.c: the function BKE_undosys_step_push_with_type is called with a NULL value for string.
The string is set higher up in the stack in paint_image_undo.c function ED_image_undo_push_end which makes the call BKE_undosys_step_push(ustack, NULL, NULL).

When BKE_undosys_step_push_with_type tries to do a BLI_strncpy (line 423) it crashes because the string it is copying is NULL.

In my local copy I changed line 422

if (us->name[0] == '\0') {

to be

if ((us->name[0] == '\0') && (name!=NULL)){

which seems to fix the crash.

However, I am not sure if
a. name should ever have been passed as NULL and what the implications of ignoring that are
b. if (us->name[0] == '\0') is actually needed - does that stop changing of us->name if it is already set.

Anyway - hope that helps a little.
