           Summary: std.stdio.write family blocks on file lock
           Product: D
           Version: 2.029
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: graham.stjack internode.on.net


In multi-threaded applications, File.LockingTextWriter is not correctly
locking/unlocking the underlying FILE* handle, resulting in deadlocks. The more
trace prints you put in to find the problem, the worse it gets.

The problem seems to be related to recent dmd bug-fixes, and I worked around it
with the following change. It looks like LockingTextWriter needs to be
revisited, maybe by reinstating the non-hacked implementation.

$ diff dmd/src/phobos/std/stdio.d stdio.d
922c922
<         //return LockingTextWriter(this);
---
         return LockingTextWriter(this);

< auto result = LockingTextWriter(this); < return result; ---
         //auto result = LockingTextWriter(this);
         //return result;

Created an attachment (id=339)

A test-case

This is more complicated than it needs to be, but I already had it lying about
for another bug report. If deadlocks at various points using dmd 2.029, but
when I modify std.stdio as described in the bug report, it works every time.
