Since the recent history of my two Windows buildbots has turned ugly, I figured I'd mention that they both (XP and Windows 7) have started generating quite a few GUI C++ RTL runtime pop-up assertions, which has been throwing a wrench into things until they get manually cleared. I first noticed them Sunday night but they were probably there 24-48 hours at that point. These are R6034 "An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly"
I glanced through recent commits and I don't think I see anything obviously related but was wondering if anyone who might have been committing changes in the past few days might have an thought? The source filename is truncated in the dialog (what genius at MS thought that would be the one field worth truncating?!) so I am not absolutely sure if they are limited to a specific branch or not.
I've thrown on an autoit script to try to automatically acknowledge these dialogs so hopefully the affected test runs will just fail rather than timing out and blocking later runs.
With the help of bbreport, I collected these informations: - 3 tests are freezing randomly : test_bz2, test_codecs and test_tarfile - it happens on XP-4 and Windows7 builders (branches 2.7 and 3.1 only, trunk is not affected) - it seems to happen since revisions 84345 and 84346 which fixed issue # 1868
my .2 cents,
