FS#9631 - Since Resize added to current build, certain themes crash

It seems that the current builds now include album art resizing, and most themes seem to behave just fine using it. Free-State however crashes on me when loading certain album art. I’m getting a freeze (background is intact with no text) when switching to certain albums (certain bmps), and when switching themes to Free-State while playing those albums, I get the following error: Data abort at 000320B8 (0)
Free-State is not the ONLY theme I’ve noticed this behavior in, but its the one I’d miss most if this isn’t fixed. I’ll add to this thread more information as I explore further and identify which themes exhibit similar behavior since the resize feature was added.
My non-programmer-based-suspicion is that since its only occurring while loading certain albums, that those bmp’s are too large to properly resize, or the resizing doesn’t fit into the alloted area given it in the .wps

Works on my e200.

If you know which album art in particular was giving you trouble, or at least what was in the playlist when the crash occurred, and if you could attach it here or upload it somewhere, that would be a big help. Most problems I’ve seen so far have turned out to be related to the relative sizes of the WPS AA tag and the source bitmap - a few cases where things can go wrong have shown up since scaling was committed.

I’m attaching the .bmp from an album that I know exhibited the problems I mentioned. I’ll have to wait until I have some time to document my usage to provide more information.

   cover.bmp (33.1 KiB)

Surfi from Anythingbutipod just helped me with this exact problem. It seems that the problem lies in resizing the album art to an odd number. I fixed the problem with my theme by simply changing the resize size from 85 to 90.

I saw the same problem on my e200 real target.
“Data abort at 000322E8 (0)”

Steps to reproduce
(1) play with the attached “cover.bmp”(130×130) on cabbiev2 wps (120×120)
(2) select Free-State wps (%Cl|7|138|c75|c75|)
(3) can’t change wps and abort…

and this problem does not occur on e200 sim.
#I also saw the same problem on my ipod video real target.
#but the problem does not occur on ipod video sim.
#Something arm related issue?

So, I dumped my e200 binary with nm and objdump.
Please see the following info.

Free-State is the following.;

Akio: thanks for finding it. The load is guaranteed to be unaligned if both dimensions of the output size are odd, I’ve added an align_buffer to fix it. Should work as of r19439.
