Subject: [Edbrowse-dev] infinite loop

Message-ID: <20140120100102.eklhad@comcast.net> (raw)

I will respond to some of your other questions in a bit, but first ...

the hog memory button, as it is today, with jspool = 8, though I don't
think pool size matters, I push it , get my numbers, get the error;
then I push it again and edbrowse falls into an infinite spinning loop inside
The load average jumps up to 1.
You have to ^| quit to break out.

Now, even stranger, in buffers .c,
at line 4346 is jSyncup().
Just before that put this line in.

printf("findField returns xx\n", 27);

It's just a print statement, that's all, but it fixes the infinite loop.

Even stranger, remove the argument 27 from the print statement,
it isn't being used anyways, and the infinite loop is back.
Probably the strangest repeatable thing I've seen in 30 years of programming.
