[New-bugs-announce] [issue5114] / test_threading hangs

Andreas Kupries report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Andreas Kupries <andreask at activestate.com>:

On two machines I have seen test_threading hang in ...
HPUX 11.22 ia64,
Solaris 5.8 sparc

The attached file contains the output of running

./apy/bin/python2.5 ./apy/lib/python2.5/test/regrtest.py -v test_threading

on the problematic machines.

It is necessary to kill one of the subprocesses to force forward
progress. A partial output of 'ps -ef' on the HPUX machine is

./apy/lib/python2.5/test/regrtest.py -v tes

And I usually kill the bottom most process.
