Infite recursion in plone.i18n.normalize (__init__.py)

Reported by: Sardtok Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 4.x
Component: Internationalization Version: 4.0
Keywords: linguaplone Cc:


After installing LinguaPlone it seems I can't create new content using Add New. It's possible to copy content and change it by manually renaming it through the contents page, but that means I can't add new types of content.

Versions: Plone - 4.0.2 plone.app.i18n - 2.0 plone.i18n - 2.0 LinguaPlone - 4.0.2

To me it seems that queryUtility returns the URLNormalizer from i18n/normalizer/init.py to its own normalize function: util = queryUtility(IURLNormalizer, name=locale) ... if util is not None:

text = util.normalize(text, locale=locale)

If util here is of the same class/the same object as the one normalize is first called on, it will just keep calling its own normalize over and over.

So it seems there's something wrong with queryUtility.

I've tried looking for this bug, but haven't found it here, or by googling, so I'm suspecting it might be some configuration or plug-in that screws up the queryUtility function.

Changing all lines that read:

if util is not None


if util is not None and util.__class__ is not self.__class__

will fix this bug. The problem of course is the base normalizer is returned when trying to get a normalizer for a language which doesn't have a specific normalizer. Therefore the base normalizer goes into an infinite loop creating new instances of base normalizers. Note that the test "util is not self", will not work due to new instances being created every time.

Note that all occurences should be changed, as some such tests affect file downloads and others publication. Some others again probably affect other areas.
