bug#5983: 23.1.96; compilation-next-error broken

From: stephe
Subject: bug#5983: 23.1.96; compilation-next-error broken
Date: Tue, 20 Apr 2010 05:45:02 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.1 (windows-nt)

Starting from `emacs -Q':

open this C file:

int main (int argc, char *argv[])

   printf ("missing include\n");
   printf ("missing paren";
   return 0;
} /* end main */
/* end of file */

(note that it is missing a #include, and is missing a paren)

Attempt to compile it:

M-x compile

Change the compile command to:

gcc test.c

This gives a list of compilation errors:

-*- mode: compilation; default-directory: "/home/stephe/" -*-
Compilation started at Tue Apr 20 05:25:38

gcc test.c
test.c: In function ‘main’:
test.c:4: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function 
test.c:5: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘;’ token
test.c:7: error: expected ‘;’ before ‘}’ token

Compilation exited abnormally with code 1 at Tue Apr 20 05:25:38

Go to the first error: C-x ` . point is now on the line that prints
"missing include". Fix the problem by adding a line "#include <stdio.h>"
at the top of the buffer. Now the line number in the next error message
is wrong, but Emacs used to handle that by using markers appropriately.

Now go to the next error: C-x `. Point should be on the line that prints
"missing paren", but it is on the previous line (the current line 5).

The problem seems to be in compilation-next-error. It has a mechanism
that sets markers based on the line/column info in the error messages,
assuming the file has not changed. It puts file mod timestamps in the
compilation error structure to record that this has been done, so it
doesn't get done again (after the buffer has changed). However, it
doesn't set the timestamp in every line, and when it gets to a line
without a timestamp, it processes the marker info again, which is wrong.

I don't have a fix.

This same bug is in trunk (emacs version, bzr rev 99948)
