Target version changed from 1.9.2 to 1.9.3


----------------------------------------
Bug #4243: [PATCH] DRb should not forefully close connections on DRb#stop_service
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/4243

Author: Jonas Pfenniger
Status: Assigned
Priority: Normal
Assignee: Masatoshi Seki
Category: lib
Target version: 1.9.3
ruby -v: 1.9.2@30363


=begin
 When DRb#stop_service is called, all connections get terminated by
 calling Thread.kill on them. It means that all code that is invoked trough
 DRb must be exception-safe. This poses the same kind of issues we have
 with Kernel#timeout.
 
 This patch changes the behavior or DRb to only kill the accepting
 thread, so that no new connections are made. New queries are also
 rejected. DRb#stop_service is synchronous and waits for all child-threads
 to terminate.
 ---
 Please note that this patch is quite old, so I may have forgotten some details
 of it. It was posted on rubyforge at http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?func=detail&atid=1698&aid=14438&group_id=426.
 The new version got imported into git and applies on top of ae3666b38fd723231c0bbc3c33f4603b6e0e0ef0 or svn r30363 (not sure about the patch format)
 
 This patch can easily be back-ported to 1.8.x since drb.rb hasn't changed much.
 
 Cheers,
