Title: Graph which crashes neato
Submitter: Ian Barnard
Date: 16 March 2006
Subsys: neato
Version: 2.8
System: *-*-*
Severity: major
The following graph reliably crashes neato:

On Windows XP SP2, Graphviz versions 2.6 and 2.8.

Taking the / out of the labels seems to stop the crash, as does removing the overlap setting, but I really want both these to stay as the graph is being automatically generated.

Does anyone have suggestions for anything I'm doing wrong?

digraph G {
  "000006c0" [shape=record,label="ats/UserRequirements"];
   "00000661" -> "000006c0";
   "000006c0" -> "000006c1";
   "000006c0" -> "000006c0";
[erg] I believe the problem is related to a strange bug in the Voronoi code. In any case, running neato -n on this input causes a SIGFPE on linux. The reason the problem doesn't occur originally on Linux is that it starts with a different layout (due to the RNG), so the exact values needed aren't there. The crash in Windows occurs later, but Windows uses non-trapping semantics on floating point exceptions, so it's only later when things fall apart.
