Bug of the week

Bug 18578 - Certain Gray Colornames variants throw an error when used

This bug occurred because of a subtle bug in the C++ source code for colour names: the names were listed in the “correct” order (Gray99 before Gray100), but in order for the engine to work properly they need to be listed in lexicographic order (i.e. Gray1, Gray10, Gray100, Gray11 etc.)

The test stack provided by the bug reporter was very simple, effective and self-explanatory, and came with a very good set of steps to reproduce the bug. The steps gave clear results that indicated exactly where the the problem was.

Help needed!
