locale-bug in the SMB (WinFUSE) frontend

Launchpad Bug:


There seems to be a locale-bug in the WinFUSE interface (in TahoeFS. dll, in the method LinkFiles? in class TahoeInterface?).

It generates an invalid JSON message for the request "set_children" when the current culture uses a comma as the decimal separator character, as is the case in Sweden. This causes the request to fail in webish.py, line 996 (children = simplejson.loads(body)) with a ValueError?('Expecting property name: line 1 column 200 (char 200)')

This is becuase the generated JSON for ctime/mtime ends up with an unexpected comma as the decimal separator:

{ "cryptopp552.zip": [ "filenode", { "ro_uri": "URI:CHK:
"size": 992073, "metadata": { "ctime": 1207150752,03319, "mtime": 
1207150752,03319 } } ] }

I could not find the source for TahoeFS.dll in the repository, but using Reflector it seems that the ToString?() call converting the double "TotalSeconds?" into a string should explicitly specify CultureInfo?.InvariantCulture? instead of implicitly using the current culture, as in span.TotalSeconds?.ToString?(CultureInfo?.InvariantCulture?).

If we have given up on getting the NeoGeo? SMB library open-sourced, then we should close this ticket.
