Subject Kaffe fails to kill subprocesses (was Re: Killed a bunch of undead Kaffe processes)
Date Wed, 12 Jan 2005 13:51:01 GMT

during the current Kaffe run, commons-net's unit tests timed out and
the builds ends with

> Kill all child processed (anything launched by PID21010)

unfortunately it doesn't.  During the tests, commons-net starts some
server processes that bind to TCP ports and those ports are still in
state LISTEN (and lsof list kaffe-bin as owner).

So far this has caused the commons-net builds on Sun VMs to fail as
well, since they assumed the ports would be free.  Steve Cohen hopes
he's patched the tests to work around the problem.  Let's keep our
fingers crossed.

Anyway, when Kaffe tries to kill the spawned subprocesses, it
sometimes fails.  Maybe this happens because the processes are
grandchildren of the PID listed in the message.
