Subject Re: [patch] Deadlock in apr_thread_cond_wait on WIN32 platform [BugID 27654, 34336]
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2005 06:51:33 GMT
Hi Henry,

as you can see I commited the patch in February, but got no
answer/reason why the patch wasn't used in APR yet.

I'm tired asking for commiting the patch, so actually I patch
APR always for myself. As you prove, the bug REALLY exists and
makes thread conditionals under WIN32 actually unusuable.

However - good luck, maybe your patch will be commited one day.

Best regards,
