Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-03-01 08:54:37 EST
Description of problem:

I wouldn't normally mention this except that it's a
regression over Fedora 16 where valgrind apparently
cleans up properly.

For example, after a short test involving valgrind, I've
got lots of these files in my non-standard TMPDIR:

vgdb-pipe-from-vgdb-to-18823-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-from-vgdb-to-19983-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-from-vgdb-to-20067-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-from-vgdb-to-20535-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-from-vgdb-to-20922-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-shared-mem-vgdb-18823-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-shared-mem-vgdb-19983-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-shared-mem-vgdb-20067-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-shared-mem-vgdb-20535-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-shared-mem-vgdb-20922-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-to-vgdb-from-18823-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-to-vgdb-from-19983-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-to-vgdb-from-20067-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-to-vgdb-from-20535-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org
vgdb-pipe-to-vgdb-from-20922-by-rjones-on-spin.home.annexia.org

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

1:valgrind-3.7.0-1.fc17.x86_64

How reproducible:

100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use valgrind on just about any program.
2.
3.
  
Actual results:

Temporary file is left around.

Expected results:

It used to be cleaned up.

Hmmm, maybe this doesn't happen on "just any program".
I'm going to look at this a bit more ...

Have you looked a bit more? Might this be related/similar to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=803725

I don't think this happens any more, so closing.
