Bug report / looking for workarounds for recent ChatGPT Plugin mechanism Bug for long Strings

As of 8/2023, ChatGPT has a bug / problem that when a plugin request contains a long string such as a multi line text fragment that often leads to ApiSyntaxError: Could not parse API call kwargs as JSON: exception=Expecting ',' delimiter... during the plugin call because the generated JSON for the request is wrong. For instance:

  "path": "ui.apps/src/test/content/jcr_root/apps/foo/bar/_cq_dialog/.content.xml",
  "replacements": [
      "search": "</items>\n    </content>",
      "replace": "<generationControl jcr:primaryType=\"nt:unstructured\" sling:resourceType=\"granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/container\" fieldDescription=\"Generation Control\">\n" +
        "            <items jcr:primaryType=\"nt:unstructured\">\n" +
        "                <generationControlButtons jcr:primaryType=\"nt:unstructured\" sling:resourceType=\"granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/container\" 

Note that in the replace it uses a + to concatenate Strings in the text fragment, which would be perfectly fine for Javascript, but not JSON. Unfortunately that seriously harms my Developers Workbench plugin.
Now - if OpenAI would just support that kind of plugin request, that would nicely solve this bug. (Is there an official place where to report such ChatGPT bugs?)
In the meantime - has somebody a workaround for that problem? I partially “solved” a similar problem that the ChatGPT plugin mechanism gives a bad error message ApiSyntaxError: Could not parse API call kwargs as JSON: exception=Unterminated string ... to ChatGPT whenever the plugin request is too long by explaining that to ChatGPT in the description_for_model in ai-plugin.json , but that isn’t a particularily nice approach. :slightly_smiling_face: The only thing I can think of is to change the format of the plugin requests from a multi line string to an array of strings, one for each line of the text, but I’m not sure if that’ll degrade performance.

Thanks so much,

Hi, yes you can post them to the Bugs Category Bugs - OpenAI Developer Forum

I was getting a similar error when using my GPT Action, instructing the GPT to use JSON minification helped to compress the message.

There is an bug in mobile chat gpt when I open and use the audio tool and cancel it and then turn on my g bord mic then the chat gpt stats making zoop zoopp zaap sound like if I am watching a conversation in 100x
