Summary0005708: Multiple lines (\r\n) in single websocket frame with labeled-response
DescriptionThe first three replies are sent in a single frame when using websocket (this seems to happen on every BATCH, for example replies for HISTORY and WHOIS commands).

← @label=xxx history #testtest

In a single packet:
→ @label=xxx BATCH +PbZCD0QZGMMHQwa7KU5Y4V labeled-response
→ @batch=PbZCD0QZGMMHQwa7KU5Y4V BATCH +2CrEHYl23nQnHSS4KOolGT chathistory #testtest
→ @batch=PbZCD0QZGMMHQwa7KU5Y4V;batch=2CrEHYl23nQnHSS4KOolGT;time=2020-06-12T13:56:03.465Z;msgid=i5gz6M8Qw0hWThWnCyJQFa :[email protected] PRIVMSG #testtest :7

Then the rest (every line in their own packet):
→ @batch=2CrEHYl23nQnHSS4KOolGT;time=2020-06-12T13:56:05.306Z;msgid=n9AFDtvL1QSpclJltL9WX9 :[email protected] PRIVMSG #testtest :8
→ @batch=2CrEHYl23nQnHSS4KOolGT;time=2020-06-12T13:56:07.204Z;msgid=mvIN1kI7vzGbFSNhPFpsIU :[email protected] PRIVMSG #testtest :9
Steps To ReproduceCreate a channel, set +H and store some history entries. Then do:
cap req :labeled-response batch server-time message-tags
@label=xxx history #testtest
TagsNo tags attached.

Thanks, probably not very easy to fix but we'll look into it (not very soon, though).

websocket_create_frame() would need to be rewritten with some kind of loop. However, that needs to be done very carefully as it is very easy to make a small mistake there that lead to crashes and security issues. I don't have time for that at this very moment... and tbh I don't trust anyone else ;)

Took a few hours of coding and testing/validating, but this is now fixed. More testing would be appreciated to make sure that it doesn't introduce new issues with websocket.

    Fix labeled-response causing two lines in one websocket frame.
    This goes against our guarantee of 1 IRC line = 1 websocket frame.
