"possible process hang on thread death"
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
Threads in glibc have problems exiting appropriately.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run multithreaded app
2. if a thread receives a signal, it hangs
It looks like this has been out there for awhile, looked at the SRPMS and it
doesn't look like fix is included (we see same stack trace as inktomi):
LinuxThreads has problems with signals, this is nothing new. Try RHL9 with NPTL
which should handle all these things nicely.
