Issue #5306 has been updated by Charlie Savage.


Unfortunately it is not.  That was the first problem - and resulted in segmentation faults. We manually backported the fix for #5299 to our local copy of ruby 193.  Once we did that, it fixed the segmentation faults, but resulted in this problem.

So this is a new problem with that particular commit.

Bug #5306: Application Hangs Due to Recent rb_thread_select Changes
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5306

Author: Charlie Savage
Status: Open
Priority: High

This commit:

4e9438bc9153f7a1f4ea0af85c8dbe359e1a55d8

Changed the implementation of rb_thread_select.  

It causes eventmachine to hang on CentOS 5.5.  Not sure what the issue is, but its easily reproduced by by running the test eventmachine/tests/test_epoll.rb.  

We noticed this because it also causes the tweetstream gem to hang.

The same setup works on Fedora 14 and an up-to-date arch linux.  Specific version information included below.

We temporarily fixed this by reverting the commit.

Since Centos is a common production environment (and the one we are using), this seems to us a blocker for 1.9.3. 

We are happy to provide any additional information or test fixes.  

Thanks - Charlie
