            Bug ID: 5916
           Summary: lazymanifest can SIGSEGV when out of memory
           Product: Mercurial
           Version: 4.6
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: bug
          Priority: normal
         Component: Mercurial
          Assignee: bugzi...@mercurial-scm.org
          Reporter: jef...@josefsipek.net
                CC: mercurial-devel@mercurial-scm.org

In order to work around hgweb leaking a ton of memory (see bug# 5913), I've
wrapped its startup with a ulimit:

(
        ulimit -v 200000
        exec hg serve --webdir-conf /repos/hgweb.config
)

This leads to malloc calls eventually failing.  One of the failure modes I've
seen is a SIGSEGV in lazymanifest. 

status: process terminated by SIGSEGV (Segmentation Fault), addr=11

Specifically in:

parsers.so`lazymanifest_dealloc+0x33()
parsers.so`lazymanifest_copy+0xe4()
libpython2.7.so.1.0`PyEval_EvalFrameExReal+0x96e1()
libpython2.7.so.1.0`PyEval_EvalFrameEx+0x19()
libpython2.7.so.1.0`PyEval_EvalCodeEx+0x866()
libpython2.7.so.1.0`PyEval_EvalFrameExReal+0x6877()
libpython2.7.so.1.0`PyEval_EvalFrameEx+0x19()
...

lazymanifest_dealloc+0x33 is the 'if (self->lines[i].from_malloc)' condition. 
It turns out that at least in one of the crashes I've seen:

1. self != NULL
2. self->numlines == 0x8842
3. self->lines == NULL

The easiest fix is to check for self->lines being non-NULL when executing the
for-each-line loop.
