Previously, a race condition could occur in the Berkeley DB Concurrent Data Store, which corrupted to the RPM database (RPMDB). After this update, process IDs during file transactions are more thoroughly tested. As a result, the race condition and the consequent RPMDB corruption no longer occur.

Description Jan Kurik 2014-07-28 08:05:14 UTC

Comment 5 Branislav Blaškovič 2014-07-31 12:10:47 UTC
I am not able to reproduce this issue with attached reproducer BZ#1099509#c13.
    libdb-5.3.21-17.el7.x86_64

Running test.sh or rpmtest.sh just write `date` and nothing else - it just hangs there.

Am I doing something wrong?
