Forwarding Debian bug #935614:

The first session test fails with an error on Debian bullseye/sid (full build log:

session/test-01.xml... .(bcacfghi vs. acbcfghi) FAILED

The same version builds fine on Debian buster.

We could use some help in figuring out why the test fails.

Hi, @pabs3

Please, try to debug this file (function perform_single_test in line 136). I think something is wrong in code result = inf_text_chunk_equal(test_chunk, final);
P.S. Code for function inf_text_chunk_equal exists in file

I mean sure. The thing is: The algorithm changed its result and it's literally stopping corruption from getting shipped. Someone needs to take a look as to what changed so that the ordering of the first two chunks is consistently wrong. The two requests are effectively reordered when they are not expected to me:

 <request time="" user="2">
  <insert pos="2">ac</insert>

 <request time="" user="3">
  <insert pos="3">bc</insert>

If it wouldn't fail that consistently I'd have said that something started randomizing but that's not what we see in Debian. @aburgm Do you happen to have an idea?
