glibc-2.3.2-45 causes mozilla mail to lockup
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:08:17 EST
Description of problem:
mozilla mail locks up when clicking on first unread mail from imap server
with glibc-2.3.2-45, but OK with glibc-2.3.2-41. Smells like a thread problem.
Mozilla application is completely stalled and unresponsive, but X11 and other
apps are still live. Can't close mozilla, but can kill it from other window.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.(new mail from imap server)
3.click on new mail item.
Which kernel version?
kernel-2.4.20-20.1.2007.nptl.i686 and also with kernel-2.5.70-bk6
also broken in glibc-2.3.2-48
Mozilla appears to be completely unusable to me after upgrading from glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i686.rpm to glibc-2.3.2-48.i686.rpm. It locks up after a minute of web browsing or so, strace gives:
# strace -p 23630
futex(0x400cfb1c, FUTEX_WAIT, 182836, NULL <unfinished ...>
I'm using kernel 2.4.20-13.9smp
