Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: carnage blender is live on aolserver 4 beta5

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
patch pthread.c so "ns_mutex destroy" doesn't have the potential of crashing the server. (aolserver developers don't feel this patch is worth applying officially but if you ever want to destroy a mutex, you pretty much need it.)
What!? "ns_mutex destroy" can crash AOLserver? That sounds like a major bug to me, and could definitely totally break some of the sites I run. Jonathan, can you tell use more about that bug, and why the AOLserver folks haven't or arent' going to fix it? Are the bug and patch on SourceForge?
