Description Kevin Van Brunt 2007-02-28 19:37:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30) Description of problem: I have written a small program to demonstrate this bug. It causes ptrace to trace /bin/ls. After the first waitpid, the parent sends a SIGKILL to ls and ls performs a segmentation fault. /bin/ls is only used as an example. Any traced process has the same problem. I have traced xterm, firefox, and gnome-cd as well and seen the bug. The code will be attached to this bug report. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compile and run the attached code. Actual Results: The message "GOT SIGSEGV" should appear because the traced program performs a segmentation fault. Expected Results: The traced program should not perform a segmentation fault and no message should appear. Additional info:

Created attachment 148952 [details] A test c program that demonstrates the bug.
Comment 2 Albert Cahalan 2007-03-07 04:31:25 UTC
A pure 184.108.40.206 kernel does not show the problem at all. I even tried adding sched_yield in various places to see if scheduling order would affect things. This is probably a utrace bug.
Comment 3 Roland McGrath 2007-03-19 23:03:55 UTC
I reproduced this on 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 but not on 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6. Please try the latest fc6 update kernel and verify that the problem is gone for you.
Comment 4 Kevin Van Brunt 2007-03-20 17:20:41 UTC
It looks to be fixed in 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6.
