Bug introduced in 10.0.0 and fixed in 10.4.0


In Mathematica 10.01 Linux x386 execution of the expression

spin1 = Table[{{Sin[ϕ], Cos[ϕ]}, 0.3 {-Cos[ϕ], Sin[ϕ]}}, {ϕ, 0, 2 π, π/6.}];    
spin1a = ListVectorPlot[spin1, VectorPoints -> All, 
  VectorScale -> 0.093, 
  VectorStyle -> {{Black, AbsoluteThickness[1], Arrowheads[0.02]}}, 
  Frame -> False]

and then

spin2 = Table[{1.2 {Sin[ϕ], Cos[ϕ]}, 0.3 {Cos[ϕ], -Sin[ϕ]}}, {ϕ, 0, 2 π, π/6.}];
spin2a = ListVectorPlot[spin2, VectorPoints -> All, 
  VectorStyle -> {{Black, AbsoluteThickness[1], Arrowheads[0.04]}}, 
  Frame -> False]

causes kernel quit.

  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried the latest Mathematica Version? 10.0.2 has fixed many bugs $\endgroup$ – Philipp Jan 14 '15 at 13:10
  • $\begingroup$ In 10.0.2 under Windows 7 running the first block of code is sufficient to crash the Kernel. $\endgroup$ – Mr.Wizard Jan 14 '15 at 13:31

    $\begingroup$ @rcollyer Reduced example: ListVectorPlot[{{{0, 1}, {-1, 0}}, {{1, 0}, {0, 1}}, {{0, -1}, {1, 0}}}] $\endgroup$ – Mr.Wizard Jan 14 '15 at 13:44

    $\begingroup$ @Mr.Wizard: crashes with 10.0.0, 10.0.1 and 10.0.2 on Windows but works with 8.0.4 and 9.0.1 on Windows for me. For 10.0.1 there are additional error messages... $\endgroup$ – Albert Retey Jan 16 '15 at 9:34

On 10.4.1, it is fixed. Here's a screen shot of the second plot.
