Subject program crash with apr_thread_pool
Date Wed, 31 Jan 2007 11:15:13 GMT

I'm using apr_thread_pool of APR-util from the trunk.

When I compile and run the code below, the program crashes due to double free
in apr_pool_destroy.  It seems I must call apr_thread_pool_destroy explicitly to
avoid the crash.

As far as I can understand, apr_thread_pool_destroy is implicitly executed when
I call apr_pool_destroy(pool) in the code.  Can anybody kindly explain why the
double free happens without apr_thread_pool_destroy?

I am using RHEL4 (Linux 2.6.9-42.0.3, glibc 2.3.4).

Thanks in advance.

#include <apr_general.h>
#include <apr_thread_pool.h>

main(int argc, char **argv, char **env)
  apr_pool_t *pool;
  apr_thread_pool_t *thread_pool;

		     (const char * const **)&argv,
		     (const char * const **)&env);

  apr_pool_create(&pool, NULL);

  apr_thread_pool_create(&thread_pool, 1, 1, pool);

  /* the program craches without this call */
  // apr_thread_pool_destroy(thread_pool);


  return 0;
