comment:1 Changed 13 years ago by icepick

LocalAsyncForwarder was returning Deferred's to my when in a
real network it wouldn't, so I fixed it.

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by moshez

This is weird. When deferreds are passed a deferred as a value, it should 
automatically undefer basically, _stripDeferred should be a no-op. 
Can you find a test case which demonstrates this problem? Because I think the 
solution should be elsewhere.

comment:3 Changed 13 years ago by icepick

Sure.  My chord unit test makes use of this:

If you run it thru 'trial' without this patch you get errors of callback getting
Deferreds with results as the arg.

comment:4 Changed 13 years ago by moshez

Can you attempt to minimize the error? I can't run these, because I lack a significant number of dependencies, and I'm pretty certain this can't be related to, say, pycrypto :)

comment:5 Changed 13 years ago by itamarst

I think the issue is the code does myDeferred.callback(o) where o might be a
Deferred as well. If o is a Deferred this is incorrect behaviour.

comment:6 Changed 13 years ago by moshez

He doesn't seem to call .callback himself, so there would appear to be an error in Twisted somewhere.
Hence, my request for a bug report, rather than a patch.
icepick, in general, we need a bug report before we can evaluate patches. Ideally, a failing test case which we can run is best -- this allows us to add it to the Twisted test suite to ensure the bug doesn't happen again [or to see that you are using an API incorrectly and add a warning to the documentation].

comment:7 Changed 13 years ago by icepick

I'll work on a simple test case, probably this weekend.

comment:8 Changed 13 years ago by icepick

This was bugging me, and the test is simple.  Here is a patch for the unit test
that shows my problem.

comment:9 Changed 13 years ago by icepick

The last patch is incorrect.  Working on a new one.

comment:10 Changed 13 years ago by moshez

The following patch would appear to solve the problem correctly.
Assigning to Itamar for review, feel free to assign back to me for
applying the patch, or apply it yourself.

I can't get the patch to apply the diff, dunno why. Feel free to do it yourself
and commit.

I applied the patch to my tree and it works.  Thanks.
