Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48746] exec task sometimes inserts extraneous newlines
Date Mon, 14 Jun 2010 10:30:25 GMT

There also is bug 46805 which somehow may also be related.

Of the suggested changes over there we have performed one (join timeout) but
neglected two that we may want to rethink:

* unconditionally call process.destroy and don't close the streams at all
  (rely on process.destroy to do that).  I'm not convinced this is going to
  or even poses a problem.  At the point where we close the streams either
  process.waitFor has succeeded or we have invoked process.destroy

* first close the streams and then stop the threads
  At first glance I'd expect this change to make it more likely to miss
  output written by the process but at the same time it may force buffers to
  get flushed.

I'll look into bringing real testcases for bug 5003 into Ant's trunk so we can
test a few things.  I don't think I ever checked in the ones I used by the
end of 2008 and don't have them anymore, so I'll have to recreate them.
