Issue #6416 has been updated by authorNari (Narihiro Nakamura).


Hello

I need sometimes to call Thread#join in Signal.trap when I want to implement safe termination in a server.
For instance: https://gist.github.com/4158509

Is it a wrong use case in the first place?

Thanks.

Bug #6416: Deadlock when calling Thread#join from signal interrupt context

Target version: 2.0.0
ruby -v: ruby 2.0.0dev (2012-05-09 trunk 35598) [x86_64-linux]


=begin
The interpreter can deadlock when calling Thread#join both from the main context and from the signal handler context.

  t = Thread.new{ sleep 3 }

  Signal.trap "SIGINT" do
    t.join
  end

  puts 'Press ctrl + c now'
  t.join

The above will deadlock on linux x86_64 with ruby 1.9.x and ruby trunk. It works fine with ruby 1.8.7-p352 and JRuby.

=end
