Subject Re: 1.3.28 alloc.c patch to CVS tree not working
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2003 11:15:57 GMT
I didn't work up or commit that exact patch; I just noticed that a patch 
was finally committed so I closed the PR.  But I plead guilty to sharing 
some of the thoughts behind the part of the patch that may be failing on 
your box.  The issue with Ralf's patch, which is perhaps unavoidable in 
a portable manner, is that it always waits at least a tiny amount of 
time even if the process has already exited.  We wanted to avoid that, 
but to do so we relied on a behavior that has turned out to be 
unportable, failing on at least Tru64 and Mac OS X.

 From your notes, it looks like you properly built in the changes.  I'll 
update the bugzilla entry with your report of failure on Tru64.  The 
code will be fixed before long.  And thanks for trying it out.

You may wish to look over the latest comments to the PR at

Take care,

Jeff
