Long exception lines result in a stack buffer overflow or assertion abort because the assumption that snprintf not counts discarded chars is wrong and (off) >= sizeof(arrow).

Isn't this redundant, as you have off >= max_off in the if condition above?

Only replaced asserts from before

arrow[off++] = (sourceline_string[i] == '\t') ? '\t' : ' ';
}
for (int i = start; i < end; i++) {
if (sourceline_string[i] == '\0' ||
static_cast<size_t>(off) >= sizeof(arrow)) {
if (sourceline_string[i] == '\0' || off >= max_off) {

off cannot be greater than max_off as the CHECK_LT in the previous loop ensures that, right?

This can still cause an assertion to be raised when sourceline_string is really long and snprintf() tries to write past sizeof(arrow).

If the total length of all of the strings being printed to arrow exceeds sizeof(arrow), snprintf() will truncate the output and return -1 to indicate that truncation has happened. When that happens (like in #2581), CHECK_GE(off, 0) will trigger and cause a C++ assertion.

snprintf returns -1 only on an encoding error else it will return the number of characters that would have been written if if n had been sufficiently large. In #2581 it triggers at https://github.com/nodejs/node/blob/master/src/node.cc#L1379

Based on https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.std.c/lIvkxXr5_wE/aVuIpm52ToQJ for an encoding error you have to use mbrtowc() or wcrtomb(), directly or indirectly which you only do with "%lc" or "%ls" format specifiers. I think in that case an assert is enough.

I'm testing on Windows where a custom snprintf() is used which internally uses _vsprintf_p() which MSDN says:

_vsprintf_p and _vswprintf_p return the number of characters written, not including the terminating null character, or a negative value if an output error occurs.

So on Windows, exceeding sizeof(arrow) must constitute an "output error" and that's why I'm seeing off == -1

Yes the custom snprintf should be replaced with something like this:
The _TRUNCATE negates the non-standard -1 behaviour and VS 2015 has
snprintf.

#if _MSC_VER < 1900
int snprintf(char *buffer, size_t n, const char *format,...){
  va_list argp;
  int ret;
  va_start(argp, format);
  ret = _vscprintf(format, argp);
  vsnprintf_s(buffer, n, _TRUNCATE, format, argp);
  va_end(argp);
  return ret;
}
#endif

Regarding the failed CI run, I am hypothesizing that maybe the PR got updated soon after the Jenkins job was started, as it shows above "skomski added some commits on Aug 16, 1970"

The CI job was started around 3:52 AM UTC on 9/1/2015. @skomski did you update the PR shortly after that time? http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Jenkins+job&iso=20150901T0352&p1=%3A

@orangemocha None of these failures could be related to the PR. This change only affects how errors are handled before being printed. So a test would need to have failed before this code path is touched

Update to 4.0.0
* OpenSSL 1.0.2 or later is required.

Changelog:
## 2015-09-08, Version 4.0.0 (Stable), @rvagg

### Notable changes

This list of changes is relative to the last io.js v3.x branch release, v3.3.0. Please see the list of notable changes in the v3.x, v2.x and v1.x releases for a more complete list of changes from 0.12.x. Note, that some changes in the v3.x series as well as major breaking changes in this release constitute changes required for full convergence of the Node.js and io.js projects.

* **child_process**: `ChildProcess.prototype.send()` and `process.send()` operate asynchronously across all platforms so an optional callback parameter has been introduced that will be invoked once the message has been sent, i.e. `.send(message[, sendHandle][, callback])` (Ben Noordhuis) [#2620](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2620).
* **node**: Rename "io.js" code to "Node.js" (cjihrig) [#2367](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2367).
* **node-gyp**: This release bundles an updated version of node-gyp that works with all versions of Node.js and io.js including nightly and release candidate builds. From io.js v3 and Node.js v4 onward, it will only download a headers tarball when building addons rather than the entire source. (Rod Vagg) [#2700](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2700)
* **npm**: Upgrade to version 2.14.2 from 2.13.3, includes a security update, see https://github.com/npm/npm/releases/tag/v2.14.2 for more details, (Kat Marchán) [#2696](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2696).
* **timers**: Improved timer performance from porting the 0.12 implementation, plus minor fixes (Jeremiah Senkpiel) [#2540](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2540), (Julien Gilli) [nodejs/node-v0.x-archive#8751](https://github.com/nodejs/node-v0.x-archive/pull/8751) [nodejs/node-v0.x-archive#8905](https://github.com/nodejs/node-v0.x-archive/pull/8905)
* **util**: The `util.is*()` functions have been deprecated, beginning with deprecation warnings in the documentation for this release, users are encouraged to seek more robust alternatives in the npm registry, (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#2447](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2447).
* **v8**: Upgrade to version 4.5.103.30 from 4.4.63.30 (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) [#2632](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2632).
 - Implement new `TypedArray` prototype methods: `copyWithin()`, `every()`, `fill()`, `filter()`, `find()`, `findIndex()`, `forEach()`, `indexOf()`, `join()`, `lastIndexOf()`, `map()`, `reduce()`, `reduceRight()`, `reverse()`, `slice()`, `some()`, `sort()`. See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/TypedArray for further information.
 - Implement new `TypedArray.from()` and `TypedArray.of()` functions. See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/TypedArray for further information.
 - Implement arrow functions, see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Functions/Arrow_functions for further information.
 - Full ChangeLog available at https://github.com/v8/v8-git-mirror/blob/4.5.103/ChangeLog

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/node/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/690)
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1435).

## 2015-09-02, Version 3.3.0, @rvagg

### Notable changes

* **build**: Add a `--link-module` option to `configure` that can be used to bundle additional JavaScript modules into a built binary (Bradley Meck) [#2497](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2497)
* **docs**: Merge outstanding doc updates from joyent/node (James M Snell) [#2378](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2378)
* **http_parser**: Significant performance improvement by having `http.Server` consume all initial data from its `net.Socket` and parsing directly without having to enter JavaScript. Any `'data'` listeners on the `net.Socket` will result in the data being "unconsumed" into JavaScript, thereby undoing any performance gains. (Fedor Indutny) [#2355](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2355)
* **libuv**: Upgrade to 1.7.3 (from 1.6.1), see [ChangeLog](https://github.com/libuv/libuv/blob/v1.x/ChangeLog) for details (Saúl Ibarra Corretgé) [#2310](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2310)
* **V8**: Upgrade to 4.4.63.30 (from 4.4.63.26) (Michaël Zasso) [#2482](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2482)

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 2015-08-25, Version 3.2.0, @rvagg

### Notable changes

* **events**: Added `EventEmitter#listenerCount(event)` as a replacement for `EventEmitter.listenerCount(emitter, event)`, which has now been marked as deprecated in the docs. (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#2349](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2349)
* **module**: Fixed an error with preloaded modules when the current working directory doesn't exist. (Bradley Meck) [#2353](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2353)
* **node**: Startup time is now about 5% faster when not passing V8 flags. (Evan Lucas) [#2483](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2483)
* **repl**: Tab-completion now works better with arrays. (James M Snell) [#2409](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2409)
* **string_bytes**: Fixed an unaligned write in the handling of UCS2 encoding. (Fedor Indutny) [#2480](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2480)
* **tls**: Added a new `--tls-cipher-list` flag that can be used to override the built-in default cipher list. (James M Snell) [#2412](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2412) _Note: it is suggested you use the built-in cipher list as it has been carefully selected to reflect current security best practices and risk mitigation._

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 2015-08-18, Version 3.1.0, @Fishrock123

### Notable changes

* **buffer**: Fixed a couple large memory leaks (Ben Noordhuis) [#2352](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2352).
* **crypto**:
  - Fixed a couple of minor memory leaks (Karl Skomski) [#2375](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2375).
  - Signing now checks for OpenSSL errors (P.S.V.R) [#2342](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2342). **Note that this may expose previously hidden errors in user code.**
* **intl**: Intl support using small-icu is now enabled by default in builds (Steven R. Loomis) [#2264](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2264).
  - [`String#normalize()`](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/String/normalize) can now be used for unicode normalization.
  - The [`Intl`](https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Intl) object and various `String` and `Number` methods are present, but only support the English locale.
  - For support of all locales, node must be built with [full-icu](https://github.com/nodejs/node#build-with-full-icu-support-all-locales-supported-by-icu).
* **tls**: Fixed tls throughput being much lower after an incorrect merge (Fedor Indutny) [#2381](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2381).
* **tools**: The v8 tick processor now comes bundled with node (Matt Loring) [#2090](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2090).
  - This can be used by producing performance profiling output by running node with `--perf`, then running your appropriate platform's script on the output as found in [tools/v8-prof](https://github.com/nodejs/node/tree/master/tools/v8-prof).
* **util**: `util.inspect(obj)` now prints the constructor name of the object if there is one (Christopher Monsanto) [#1935](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/pull/1935).

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 2015-08-04, Version 3.0.0, @rvagg

### Notable changes

* **buffer**:
  - Due to changes in V8, it has been necessary to reimplement `Buffer` on top of V8's `Uint8Array`. Every effort has been made to minimize the performance impact, however `Buffer` instantiation is measurably slower. Access operations may be faster in some circumstances but the exact performance profile and difference over previous versions will depend on how `Buffer` is used within applications. (Trevor Norris) [#1825](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1825).
  - `Buffer` can now take `ArrayBuffer`s as a constructor argument (Trevor Norris) [#2002](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2002).
  - When a single buffer is passed to `Buffer.concat()`, a new, copied `Buffer` object will be returned; previous behavior was to return the original `Buffer` object (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#1937](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1937).
* **build**: PPC support has been added to core to allow compiling on pLinux BE and LE (AIX support coming soon) (Michael Dawson) [#2124](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2124).
* **dgram**: If an error occurs within `socket.send()` and a callback has been provided, the error is only passed as the first argument to the callback and not emitted on the `socket` object; previous behavior was to do both (Matteo Collina & Chris Dickinson) [#1796](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1796)
* **freelist**: Deprecate the undocumented `freelist` core module (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#2176](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2176).
* **http**:
  - Status codes now all use the official [IANA names](http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes) as per [RFC7231](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231), e.g. `http.STATUS_CODES[414]` now returns `'URI Too Long'` rather than `'Request-URI Too Large'` (jomo) [#1470](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1470).
  - Calling .getName() on an HTTP agent no longer returns a trailing colon, HTTPS agents will no longer return an extra colon near the middle of the string (Brendan Ashworth) [#1617](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1617).
* **node**:
  - `NODE_MODULE_VERSION` has been bumped to `45` to reflect the break in ABI (Rod Vagg) [#2096](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2096).
  - Introduce a new `process.release` object that contains a `name` property set to `'io.js'` and `sourceUrl`, `headersUrl` and `libUrl` (Windows only) properties containing URLs for the relevant resources; this is intended to be used by node-gyp (Rod Vagg) [#2154](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2154).
  - The version of node-gyp bundled with io.js now downloads and uses a tarball of header files from iojs.org rather than the full source for compiling native add-ons; it is hoped this is a temporary floating patch and the change will be upstreamed to node-gyp soon (Rod Vagg) [#2066](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2066).
* **repl**: Persistent history is now enabled by default. The history file is located at ~/.node_repl_history, which can be overridden by the new environment variable `NODE_REPL_HISTORY`. This deprecates the previous `NODE_REPL_HISTORY_FILE` variable. Additionally, the format of the file has been changed to plain text to better handle file corruption. (Jeremiah Senkpiel) [#2224](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2224).
* **smalloc**: The `smalloc` module has been removed as it is no longer possible to provide the API due to changes in V8 (Ben Noordhuis) [#2022](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2022).
* **tls**: Add `server.getTicketKeys()` and `server.setTicketKeys()` methods for [TLS session key](https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5077.txt) rotation (Fedor Indutny) [#2227](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2227).
* **v8**: Upgraded to 4.4.63.26
  - ES6: Enabled [computed property names](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Operators/Object_initializer#Computed_property_names)
  - ES6: `Array` can now be subclassed in strict mode
  - ES6: Implement [rest parameters](https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Functions/rest_parameters) in staging, use the `--harmony-rest-parameters` command line flag
  - ES6: Implement the [spread operator](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Operators/Spread_operator) in staging, use the `--harmony-spreadcalls` command line flag
  - Removed `SetIndexedPropertiesToExternalArrayData` and related APIs, forcing a shift to `Buffer` to be reimplemented based on `Uint8Array`
  - Introduction of `Maybe` and `MaybeLocal` C++ API for objects which _may_ or _may not_ have a value.
  - Added support for PPC

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/node/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1435).
