Summary0001360: Corrupted property meta.attr.comment.markup corrupts project file and eventually crashes kdenlive
DescriptionThis is what happened a few days ago:
1. while editing a project kdenlive crashed;
2. after restart it asked about recovery;
3. project file was loaded from recovery; everything seemed to be fine;
4. I saved the project;
5. after one or two moves kdenlive crashed;
6. the project file crashed kdenlive on load every time.

After some investigation I found that:
a. At some point between 1-3 one of the video clips got following property:
<property name="meta.attr.comment.markup" >???</property>
The characters from property text in hex: 3e ef bf bd ef bf bd ef bf bd 18. I got also another copy of the project file with slightly different chars: 3e ef bf bf ef bf bf 0c 1c 31 7f. These files were probably saved before the first crash.
b. Only one of other clips - mp3 file - has that property set (to a value " YEAR: 1986"), and was added to the project not long before the first crash. The property was set automatically.
c. Loading a project file with corrupted property shows all the clips on tracks at the place, everything seems to be fine, but after saving (without any other actions) kdenlive crashes while loading the project file, which is now corrupted.
d. Corrupted project file contains all the kdenlive_producer, markers, guides, groups elements (kdenlivedoc), and no longer contains producer, playlist, tractor elements.
Steps To ReproduceSteps to corrupt comment property: unknown.
Steps to corrupt project file:
1. corrupt any comment property;
2. load project file;
3. save project file.

As a first step to fix the issue, I just committed a change (svn rev. 4191) so that corrupted projects are not loaded anymore, instead a warning is displayed.

svn revision 4192 fixes the issue by removing the invalid characters when loading a project file. Now we only have a problem with the reason for the data corruption, but I think it is somewhere in MLT or FFMpeg... let me know if you can reproduce the problem, but anyways, now if some corrupted characters are passed by MLT, they will be deleted anyways, so it should be safer now...
