Geometry data weirdly permuted in Catfood 1.40

Jan 26, 2012 at 2:05 PM

I am working on a .NET C# project to import polygons into a SQL Server 2008 R2 database. With Catfood 1.20, all 400 or so shapes are correctly imported (modulo missing special characters in metadata  text strings).

After updating Catfood to version 1.40 I noticed that all the records are still present, but that the IDs and names of my polygons are weirdly permuted with the actual shapes. The aggregate shapes look the same, but the metadata don't jive.

I have since reverted to Catfood 1.20, and all is back to normal. Anyone have an idea what could be going on?

Can you share the Shapefile in question? It would be useful to reproduce the problem.

I am attaching the shapefile in question. It is the result of a reprojection using ogr2ogr.

PS: I just checked whether the attached zip file had been transferred together with the text of my reply, but no such luck. What is the easiest way to "share" the shapefile?

How large is the attachment? I've moved this issue to a work item ( and you can upload an attachment there if it's less than 4MB.

I've added a couple of fixes. Not in a release yet but can you download the latest source and see if this works for you?
