The following commands:

mkdir fossil-crash
cd fossil-crash
fossil open ~/repos/fossil.fossil f8d210aa1c150d13d6ca9d58abf9cec461e4b8c4
./fossil clone fossil.fossil

result in this error:

SQLITE_MISUSE(21): API call with NULL database connection pointer
SQLITE_MISUSE(21): misuse at line 128813 of [067291143a]
Database error: out of memory
SELECT value FROM config WHERE name='sync-url:'

The same failure happens with other protocols besides http.

Bisection reveals the failure was introduced by f11c863d91c251d0, which is a shame because I could use that feature on this project.

For now I've backed out the commit in question, along with a few things downstream of it. Here's the backout:

I am glad, one of my personal projects really benefits of the multi-remotes autosyncing all at once.

The multi-remotes don't all autosync at once. Only the default remote syncs.

"The default remote is used by autosync."

I have wanted automatic sync'ing of multiple remotes, but this is not implemented. See my thread on this topic.

Turns out there's another problem now, introduced either by the original change f11c863d91c251d0 or by the correction 857777f117eb0d5a. I used a bisect to confirm this is when things went wrong.

Cloning from one filesystem file to another results in the following:

$ fossil clone a.fossil b.fossil
SQLITE_ERROR(1): no such table: global_config in "DELETE FROM global_config WHERE name  = 'repo:/home/andy/test/b.fossil';"
Database error: no such table: global_config: {DELETE FROM global_config WHERE name  = 'repo:/home/andy/test/b.fossil';}

For now, I brought back the temporary-fix to include everything but the multi-remote capability.

To better reflect its purpose, I renamed the branch from temporary-fix to multi-remote-fix.

I compared the output of fossil -sqltrace between trunk and multi-remote-fix. This revealed the problem to be use of db_close_config() before later attempting to call db_record_repository_filename().

db_close_config() is called by db_close(), itself called by clone_cmd() due to the source repository being a local file.

db_record_repository_filename() is called by clone_cmd(), just two lines after it called db_close().

Gonna work on this some more.

In multi-remote-fix, the first major difference I see is db_close() does not call db_close_config() because g.db is NULL. Thus, the configuration table is open and the global_config table still exists by the time db_record_repository_filename() tries to access it.

In trunk, g.db is non-NULL, leading to the errors I've been experiencing, namely the configuration database being closed before db_record_repository_filename() can get to it.

g.db is non-NULL because the multi-remote feature modified url_parse_local() to call db_get() in support of the "URL" actually being the alias for a previously-registered remote URL.

Fixed, thanks again to drh. (Check-in)
