 Dear Peter,
Thanks for offering a patch, but that won't be necessary, as I can work around the shutdown
problem by just dumping the JVM through System#exit(..), and the sluggishness problem by just
being patient.
    I checked the shutdown bug on 3.0.1 and it still persists in a modified form, in that
the enigmatic thread, 'Thread-1', is left in LockSupport#parkNanos(..), so in locking. I ran
the Mickey Mouse shutdown test a few times to make sure it wasn't a racy problem.
    To give some context to the source of these slight concerns, I'm trying to build a
replacement for the now tired 'browser' that comes with the distribution. The new stuff uses
JavaFX, so will run on Java 7 and 8, hopefully. I've got as far as event-driven controls for
registrars and group membership, and will look to other functionality of the 'browser' in
fleshing out the candidate. It looks like it's going to be quite a simple application, so
easily modifiable, which can't be said for the 'browser' any more, unfortunately.
Kind regards,
Bill

 Thanks Bill,

I suspect the thread bug was fixed in 3.0.1, are you able to confirm?

I think I can provide a fix for sluggish discovery.

One of the changes with River 3.0 was to remove instances of unsafe 
publication, that is allowing a reference to "this" to escape during 
object construction.

LookupDiscovery was changed to implement Startable (which allows threads 
to start and safe publication to occur after construction), and 
LookupDiscoveryManager was also changed, to ensure safe publication.

LookupDiscoveryManager utilises LookupDiscovery to perform discovery.

I suspect the problem is LookupDiscovery starts before the safe 
publication of LookupDiscoveryManager, so that LDM is not notified 
immediately, becuase LookupDiscovery doesn't have a reference to it yet.

It will be a simple fix to delay starting of LookupDiscovery until after 
LookupDiscoveryManager publication is complete.

Would you like me to provide a patch?

Regards,

Peter.

it did indeed recognised the existence of an already running 3.0djinn, but only after a fashion.
River 2.3.3’sLookupDiscoveryManager recognises the same djinn immediately.

Anyway, I’m designing something for River, so I don’t feel too bad.
