Description Andrew Cagney 2006-02-10 04:58:49 UTC
at gnu.java.lang.MainThread.run() (/usr/lib/libgcj.so.6.0.0)

Running testBBB(frysk.event.TestEventLoop) ...Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Comment 1 Andrew Cagney 2006-02-10 05:02:38 UTC
The problem here is that the java runtime, and frysk are fighting over the
SIGCHLD handler.  Even though frysk doesn't create any child processes, GCJ
does.  GCJ can create two processes:

- a process to demangle symbols
- [possibly] a process to perform address -> line conversion

and install a null sigchld handler.  Frysk, in turn, installs its own
long-jumping handler.

A crash occures when frysk's handler finds itself processing a signal that was
ment for the core.  It attempts to longjmp through a bad buffer.
Comment 2 Andrew Cagney 2006-02-10 05:04:10 UTC
This helps, the jumpbuf has a flag indicating that it should be used.  It will
stop the bad long-jump.

       * cni/Poll.cxx (struct poll_jmpbuf): Replace poll_env.  A
       per-thread buffer.

unfortunatly this makes stack backtraces sux
