#1628 The execution hangs


Executing "run_testsuite (true, true)" in xmaxima takes 171 seconds. In wxMaxima after several hours it hangs.

Maxima version: 5.17.1
Maxima build date: 19:10 12/18/2008
host type: i686-pc-mingw32
lisp-implementation-type: GNU Common Lisp (GCL)

    First, the implementation of run_testsuite has changed. Now the command will be run_testsuite(display_all=true).

    Furthermore, I think this is a specific problem of wxMaxima on a Windows system. The result is displayed, when Maxima has finished its work. But with display_all = true the output is very large (several thousands of lines). It might be that wxMaxima hangs while trying to display the output of Maxima.

    On a Linux system I do not observe this problem with wxMaxima. The display of examples from the testsuite starts immediately.

    I think this is not a Maxima bug, but perhaps a wxMaxima problem on a Windows system. wxMaxima has a bug tracker too. Perhaps the bug should be added to the bug tracker of wxMaxima.

    Setting the status to pending and the resolution to invalid.
