I am getting indications that there are a number of very severe
thread-related breakages in 2.060 at least on Debian Unstable using the
debs.  Some of my codes that use threads explicitly work fin with 2.059
but are showing a variety of errors with 2.060. I will put a few bug
reports in and then revert to 2.059 :-((

Can you give some more details of how things are breaking? A *lot* of threading and GC related patches were applied in 2.060, and it's certainly not impossible that some of them have broken something, but I need more details to get an idea of what's going wrong. -- Alex Rønne Petersen alex lycus.org http://lycus.org

 I put up issue 8505 as an easy one, well easy to report anyway.  I
 marked it blocking but it is also a regression. I am not sure how to
 treat "regression" in terms of a total ordering with "blocking" and
 "critical". Hopefully the fix is easy and 2.061 can come out quickly.

If it's a regression, that should be the category. Other remarks about its importance should go in the comments.

I put up issue 8505 as an easy one, well easy to report anyway. I marked it blocking but it is also a regression. I am not sure how to treat "regression" in terms of a total ordering with "blocking" and "critical". Hopefully the fix is easy and 2.061 can come out quickly. I have other problems which merit bug reports, but I need to do a few bits and pieces to ensure all the reports are about 2.059 =E2=86=92 2.060 a= nd not just trivial bugs in my code. I believe I have two possibly three different issues, all threads related in some way, not just different views on the same problem. --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
