Some new information I got today. I found another user on our campus
that is having the problem on two different machines, but not a third.
All of them running Windows XP. So far every machine I have seen it on
is running XP and is a recent new install of Cygwin. Does anybody think
that they could get closer to a solution if I were to provide you with a
machine to play with remotely where the problem happens every time?
Why not try to debug it your self?
Yes, I think that this was included in my initial Email. strace produces
no output. I have tried attaching to a running/hung one as well as
Have you tried to strace it?
strace sh -c TEST=`uname -s`
Both produced nothing, I suspect that the hang is actually happening
outside of the sh that I create in the latter.
Please provide along with instructions of what to do.
Can you get a stack trace of the hang in gdb? Note: You may need a debug
version of the cygwin1.dll or shell for this to be valid. I will provide
the former if you are willing to test it.
I'll have to think about this one. I'd like to get involved in some open
source projects, but I personally don't use Cygwin all that much. In
fact it is pretty rare for me to use Windows so my overall interest in
this project is more superficial than substantially personal.
Also, Is this the only place for bug reporting for Cygwin? I can't find
any actual bug database like bugzilla to get this officially reported.
Yes. A bugzilla style database has been proposed, but we have not found
anyone willing to maintain it yet. Want to volunteer?
