#486 closed defect (fixed)

Interrupting a tcp read operation causes a crash

Reported by: Jim Ursetto Owned by: Jim Ursetto
Priority: major Milestone: 4.9.0
Component: core libraries Version: 4.6.x
Keywords: tcp scheduler crash girl interrupted Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


In 4.6.4 at the interpreter, if I read from an open tcp port with no available data, and then interrupt the operation with Ctrl-C, the system will crash the next time I try to open a TCP connection.

This happens with 4.6.4 from Dec 12 2010 and from Jan 21 2011. It does NOT occur with 4.5.8. I did not investigate further (because Felix will figure this out in 5 seconds), but I wonder if it happened during the safer-scheduler merge.

If you prefer, I can git bisect this to track it down.

This is a diagnostic error check being introduced during the spiffy debugging phase. I will keep the error but try to change the current behavior into keeping on execution.

Yes, I can no longer reproduce the problem.

I was also getting a different crash previously, however I cannot currently reproduce it (even on the old unpatched version!). So closing ticket for now.
