Annoying bug

Post by bnajdrovsky » Sun Nov 29, 2020 3:25 pm

I've identified a minor bug, but haven't been able to work around it. Specifically, there is an exception being thrown in the RemoteThumbHandler, which isn't properly handled, and consequently loading of a directory of music files never finishes loading, and the browser window just keeps 'spinning". I see the exception in the syslog:

Nov 28 20:08:29 saturn UMS.sh[1776]: ERROR 20:08:29.960 [pool-2-thread-22] Unexpected error in RemoteThumbHandler.handle(): UUID string too large
Nov 28 20:08:29 saturn UMS.sh[1776]: ERROR 20:08:29.960 [pool-2-thread-24] Unexpected error in RemoteThumbHandler.handle(): UUID string too large
Nov 28 20:08:29 saturn UMS.sh[1776]: ERROR 20:08:29.960 [pool-2-thread-23] Unexpected error in RemoteThumbHandler.handle(): UUID string too large
Nov 28 20:08:29 saturn UMS.sh[1776]: ERROR 20:08:29.960 [pool-2-thread-25] Unexpected error in RemoteThumbHandler.handle(): UUID string too large
Nov 28 20:08:29 saturn UMS.sh[1776]: ERROR 20:08:29.993 [pool-2-thread-28] Unexpected error in RemoteThumbHandler.handle(): UUID string too large
Nov 28 20:08:29 saturn UMS.sh[1776]: ERROR 20:08:29.993 [pool-2-thread-26] Unexpected error in RemoteThumbHandler.handle(): UUID string too large

Initially, i thought that maybe my JDK was too old, since the UUID:FromString() changed somewhere between JDK 8 and 9, but I upgraded to JDK 11, and the problem persists, the other thing that I noticed is that the bug doesn't manifest itself all the time, only in some subdirectories, but I've been able to identify the cause. Any suggestions?

What we can suggest without seeing the .log?

The log entries that I put in my original post are the only things that is logged when the problem occurs. There is nothing else out of the ordinary in log. I even found the pertinent Java code that generates the exception, so I guess what I'm saying is that I already know what the problem is, I was just trying to avoid having to set up the build environment to fix it myself. After all, since I'm seeing the problem with a regularity, it must affect other users as well, so I figured that the developers might want to know about it.
