#294: reserving to much memory inPolygon::GetCoordinates
 Reporter:  jaapdekker  |       Owner:  geos-devel at lists.osgeo.org
     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new                       
 Priority:  major       |   Milestone:                            
Component:  Default     |     Version:  3.0.3                     
 Severity:  Unassigned  |    Keywords:                            
 A length error exception is thrown when Polygon.GetCoordinates() is called
 with a polygon(sea area around Scotland) with 1396535 coordinates where
 the shell has size 411057 and that contains 7998 holes (Islands in the
 sea) the error is caused in Polygon.cpp where a reserve is done with the
 wrong size
 the error is on line 123 in Polygon.cpp

          * reserve space in the vector as if all holes have the same
          * amount of points. Holes usually have less, so this should
          * be a good compromise

 causing 3,287,633,886 Coordinates to be allocated
