Description George Beshers 2007-03-29 10:26:56 EDT
Description of problem:
  The multithreaded memory test hangs on SkyNet (768p system).
  The problem seems to be that the termination of one or more
  threads isn't being caught.

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

How reproducible:
  About 2 out of 3 times.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  hts certify --test=memory
Actual results:
  Process hangs forever.

Expected results:

Additional info:
PV 962379

I will add more information when I can get back onto SkyNet.

The information available on this is limited to what can be gleened from
this weekends run.  I had observed the hang twice, but was unable to
reproduce it running a version of the test compiled with -g directly.

I suggest that a timer be added to the program, or a signal handling
routine with an external timer, to terminate the test in the case
of a suspected hang with a core dump.

This did not happen the last time I ran the test w/ hts.
After a brief IM with Greg Nichols I believe the bug is fixed.
