Check syntax button results with "unknown error" on large regexes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When using the check syntax button on filters with extremely large regexes (example: - private), it fails with an unknown error.

I checked in my web console (Firefox), it sends the GET request and gets a 400 Bad Request status code back, with the Wikimedia Error screen:

Request: [unknown method] [no URL], from via cp1007.eqiad.wmnet (squid/2.7.STABLE9) to [unknown host] ([unknown])<br/>
Error: ERR_INVALID_REQ, errno [No Error] at Tue, 16 Apr 2013 23:55:47 GMT

Version: unspecified
Severity: major
