Description Wendy Cheng 2005-09-08 16:36:02 EDT
Description of problem:

Using system-config-lvm to create new logical volume, the GUI would hang if:

* the lv size is above 30GB; and 
* filesystem (say ext3) is selected. 

If the filesystem is specified as "none", it works without troubles. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
each time and every time

Additional info:
1) customer used strace and found it hung at mkfs.
2) I did gdb attach, it hung at pthread's __write_nocancel():

#0  0x000000383cc0af22 in __write_nocancel () from /lib64/tls/libpthread.so.0
#1  0x000000383c6afd36 in PyOS_AfterFork () from /usr/lib64/libpython2.3.so.1.0
#2  0x000000383c6896df in _PyEval_SliceIndex () from /usr/lib64/libpython2.3.so.1.0
#3  0x000000383c689ba1 in _PyEval_SliceIndex () from /usr/lib64/libpython2.3.so.1.0

.. (other deleted).

Forgot to say,

I ran this on x86_64 machine and cww (our TAM) also recreated this issue on
i686. So it is not platform dependent.
