Description Andrew Mike 2018-07-26 21:53:19 UTC
Description of problem: When pldd is running against an application, if the the SIGSTOP signal is not delivered to the tracee immediately after PTRACE_ATTACH, pldd will not wait for the tracee to stop before continuing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-common 2.17-222

How reproducible:
Issue is randomly reproducible as a result of the race between the delivery of SIGSTOP and PTRACE_DETACH. Incidence of this issue increases if done in a virtual machine.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "pldd $$" to trace the bash shell.

Actual results:
At random, bash will remain in T state after pldd's trace has completed until a SIGCONT is delivered.

Expected results:
After pldd is finished, bash is resumed.

Additional info:
The Sourceware bug also includes a patch.
