#415 closed defect (fixed)

get_document() on an empty database raises floating point exception

Reported by: Richard Boulton Owned by: Olly Betts

By empty, I mean a Database object uninitialised with any concrete databases.

Example code in python:

import xapian
db.get_document (1)

I would expect a DocNotFound exception.

Component: OtherLibrary API
Milestone: 1.1.4

This is because we don't check internal.size() and then proceed to divide and modulus by 0.

In fact many methods of Xapian::Database currently fail to check this...

We should fix this before 1.1.4 - it's not showstopper bug, but it's easy to fix and low risk.

Fixed for all methods of Database in trunk r13668 (and noted ticket number in r13669).

Marking for backporting to 1.0.18.
