Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-440) 23_allocator test case can consume all system memory
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2007 17:15:37 GMT
Andrew, I'm not asking for your off the cuff critique of my
admittedly fuzzy analysis. I said I wasn't sure I completely
understood the problem, so I can certainly be wrong.

What I am asking for is an hour of your time to actually debug
the problem and fix whatever is causing the test to exhaust all
4GB of memory on the system despite the 1GB limit we impose on

I'm seriously mistaken, this essentially skips over the remainder of the for loop, sending
the flow back to the start of the loop and incrementing the counter.
