Summary0006637: Create test case from requiremenent fails - UTF-8 Issue ?
DescriptionThe automatic creation of test suite and test case from requirements may fail when the title of the requirement specification folder contain an UTF-8 character at a certain position.
Steps To ReproduceEnsure use_req_spec_as_testsuite_name = TRUE in custom (and not overloaded in

1- Create a requirement specification folder with the name 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxéxx' in english UI (or 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxéxx' in french UI)
2- Create a requirement inside
3- select the requirement specification created in step 1 and click on 'Create Test Cases'
-> The function hangs with a DB error. Neither test suite nor test case are created.

I've tested on the Testlink Demo platform ( [^]). The result is different. It is less critic because test suite and test case are created. But:
  * The first two notifications after the creation are blank
  * The test suite have no additive text "(automatically generated from req. spec.)"

I suspect the difference is due to the database used. I use a postgresql database. I guess the demo site use MySql. The two databases may react in a different way to the issue.
Additional InformationI think the problem is the following: the function create_tc_from_requirement in requirement_mgr.class.php truncate the test suite name to append the string "(automatically generated from req. spec.)". It truncates at position $truncate_limit. If exactly at this position stands an UTF-8 character, this can result to have the half of the extended character.
Postgresql detects that the string is in UTF-8 encoding but a character is not entire.

The select is:
SELECT id,name FROM tl_nodes_hierarchy NH WHERE name='xx\xc3\xa0xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xc3 (g\xc3\xa9n\xc3\xa9r\xc3\xa9 automatiquement depuis le dossier d\xe2\x80\x99exigences)' AND node_type_id=2 AND parent_id = 2143;

I've patched replacing the line

$testsuite_name = substr($node['name'],0,$truncate_limit). $addition;


$testsuite_name = mb_substr($node['name'],0,$truncate_limit,mb_detect_encoding($node['name'])). $addition;

to deal with UTF-8 strings.
