restest locks up with server grab
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:52:16 EDT
The restest.c test program that was incorporated into
our X packages does printf()'s inside XGrabServer().
This is real bad, because printf() can block on the
terminal emulator, which is blocking on the server,
so the X session hangs with a server grab.
The program needs to retrieve everything, store it,
ungrab the server, XFlush(TheDisplay), then print
(If you don't XFlush(), then the server probably won't
get the ungrab.)
bliz: Is this possibly what you were seeing eons ago?
No, I don't think so.
Reopening, since there is nothing NEEDINFO here any more.
We ship xrestop now, which supercedes the 'restest' hack MarkV
wrote. Setting status to "CURRENTRELEASE" of FC2 with xrestop
