Subject [jira] [Created] (CELIX-314) longjmp causes uninitialized stack frame
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2015 19:27:10 GMT
Bjoern Petri created CELIX-314:

             Summary: longjmp causes uninitialized stack frame
                 Key: CELIX-314
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CELIX-314
             Project: Celix
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Bjoern Petri
            Assignee: Bjoern Petri

>From https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=539809 :

libcurl built without an asynchronous resolver library uses alarm() to time out DNS lookups.
When a timeout occurs, this causes libcurl to jump from the signal handler back into the library
with a sigsetjmp, which effectively causes libcurl to continue running within the signal handler.
This is non-portable and could cause problems on some platforms. A discussion on the problem
is available at http://curl.haxx.se/mail/lib-2008-09/0197.html
