Subject [jira] [Commented] (STDCXX-1071) numpunct facet cache initialization is not thread -safe
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2012 00:03:07 GMT


Liviu Nicoara commented on STDCXX-1071:

I have attached two minimal patches, one for 4.2.x and one for 4.3.x. They both eliminate
the facet data caching. The former is binary compatible with 4.2.1, the other not. Application
of either eliminates the failures in all the builds I have performed. As recorded in measurements
performed for STDCXX-1056, perfect forwarding in the facet interface actually improves performance
in multi-threaded environ. However, performance is worse in single-threaded builds.

> The bug affects the initialization of the cached data in numpunct facet. The failing
test is 22.locale.numpunct.cpp in certain builds: Linux with SUNPro 5.12, optimized, most
likely to fail. It has been reported (see linked incidents) to fail on SPARC as well. It manifests
in variate ways: sometimes as heap corruption, sometimes as access violations, etc. Test cases
and library reduction programs to follow.
