Summary0020571: Issues with strings in 1747
DescriptionThere has been a few posts reporting issues with strings in since 1747

In this topic you will find variables seem they share the same pointer space and a function, string_width() changes the content of the passed variable, or the content at the memory it points to and all other variables that were priorly set to the content also have their content modified...

Looks like someone added pointer referencing instead of memory copying of string which has adverse effects here and there in the string features
Steps To ReproduceThe link here has the details and a test program [^]

Fixed in gitlab - f16bd30

It helpded to know the problem was in string_width_ext (and not string_width)
