[New-bugs-announce] [issue5775] marshal.c needs to be checked for out of memory errors

New submission from Eric Smith <eric at trueblade.com>:
With the changes in r71665, w_object() in marshal.c needs to be checked
for out of memory errors when converting floats to strings. I'm not
convinced the existing error checking was correct, but I haven't spent a
lot of time looking at it.
The fact that w_object() is recursive makes the problem that much tougher.
I'll get to this before the next 3.1 release.
