Hello, I am seeing a problem where the CVSNT client blocks at buf_shutdown when connected to a UNIX pserver. I initially started seeing this problem when one of the CVS servers that I connect to upgraded to CVS 1.11.2. I have seen this with a number of different versions of the CVSNT client, and have verified that it does not happen with the 1.11.2 Win32 client that is available from www.cvshome.org <http://www.cvshome.org> . In order to get more information about what is happening, I checked out the latest cvsnt source a couple of hours ago and built a debug version of the client. I am running the command: cvs -z 3 version The output is this: Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 220.127.116.11 Alpha 2 (Nightly Build Debug Build 61) (client/server) Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.2 (client/server) At this point the client is in get_responses_and_close(). The call to buf_shutdown(to_server) appears to go through just fine, and then the call to buf_shutdown(from_server) blocks. I have traced into buf_shutdown(from_server), and it is blocking in a recv() call. The call stack looks like this: <mailto:wsock32.dll!_recv at 16> wsock32.dll!_recv at 16() pserver_protocol.dll!tcp_read_raw(void * data=0x00af0000, int length=0x00001000) Line 205 + 0x19 C pserver_protocol.dll!pserver_read_data(const protocol_interface * protocol=0x1001a550, void * data=0x00af0000, int length=0x00001000) Line 278 + 0x10 C cvs.exe!client_buffer_input(void * closure=0x003a78a0, char * data=0x00af0000, int need=0x00000001, int size=0x00001000, int * got=0x0012f3f0) Line 567 + 0x18 C cvs.exe!buf_read_line(buffer * buf=0x003a78e0, char * * line=0x0012f554, int * lenp=0x0012f548) Line 818 + 0x1d C cvs.exe!read_line(char * * resultp=0x0012f65c) Line 640 + 0x14 C cvs.exe!get_server_responses() Line 3240 + 0x9 C cvs.exe!start_server(int verify_only=0x00000000) Line 3627 + 0x5 C cvs.exe!cvsguiglue_main(int argc=0x00000001, char * * argv=0x003a635c) Line 1126 + 0x7 C cvs.exe!main(int argc=0x00000003, char * * argv=0x003a6040) Line 222 + 0x2a C The problem only happens when I use compression, which is consistent with the comments near buf_shutdown(). I have no control over the CVS server that I am connecting to, and I doubt the sysadmin there will be very sympathetic to me since the "plain" 1.11.2 cvs client does not exhibit this behavior. Any ideas about what might be causing this problem? I'm happy to debug further if more information would be helpful. thanks, -elliot -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
