FancyTracebacks is set to 0, FancyTraceBackContext is set to 5.  I set FancyTracebacks to 1, restarted the application server, and got similar behavior, except that the page hangs after the following in the output:
 
ImportError: No module named UnknownModule
      args = ('No module named UnknownModule',)
 
I am seeing the behavior with the included Examples/Error servlet.  One installation that demonstrates the problem can be seen at:
 
    http://dhancock.2y.net/ADC/Examples/Error
 
And one more data point--while the above is a machine at home (I'm taking the day off!), but I see the same behavior on several Linux machines at work (similar configurations, just WAY faster than my home box).
 
I appreciate all the attention to this issue--I hope we can find something and fix it.

Cheers!

Subject: RE:

The Ids section is the last part of the exception report unless you have IncludeFancyTracebacks set to true, in which case a section with the title "Fancy Traceback" comes after it.  Do you have IncludeFancyTracebacks set to true, and if so, are you in fact seing the "Fancy Traceback" section?  Maybe it's hanging in the code that generates the fancy traceback.
 
Also, does this fail with the standard Examples/Error servlet or only with a servlet you wrote yourself?

Sorry--I don't know where the subject line on the last message went.
 
One more data point--there's an </table> after the last uid line in the output I get, but that's it.  No additional information, no </body></html>, etc.
 
Cheers!

I first noticed this problem using IE-on-Windows.  I also see the problem in several other client situations (these are all on Linux):
 
1. Using a Python script with urllib.py
2. Using wget
3. Using Netscape on Linux
 
Number 3 gives the most status information:  The error page displays, right down to the uid/gid/etc. information, and the status bar states "12K read (stalled)" and the "wait cursor" (the little wristwatch) displays until I press Stop, at which point the status bar states "Document done."  At the end of the page, then, is a horizontal rule, followed by "Transfer interrupted!" in bold.
 
Now that I see what Netscape on Linux shows, there may be a clue.  Is there supposed to be more error information AFTER the list of uid/gid/pid, etc.  The last think I see is 'getuid  500' (500 is the nobody user on my box).  If there's more information being collected, perhaps that's where the hang is.

Cheers!

OK.  It doesn't happen here at work on Windows boxes, but I can try it this weekend on my linux box at home.
 
Have you by any chance tried other clients beside IE-on-Windows?  I'll only be able to test it with Linux browsers at home.

Which OS, adapter, Python version, and Webware version?  It it configured to send email or not?
 
It doesn't happen to me, and like you, I get a lot of error pages :-)

Subject: [Webware-discuss] WebKit Error traceback pages don't close their connection?

When I get an error traceback page (it happens a lot, I make a lot of mistakes), it seems like the HTTP connection doesn't get closed.  The symptoms I see are that the traceback page loads, down to the end (I think), where the IDs print, but the IE "globe" keeps spinning until I press the Stop button on the browser.

When I request the /Examples/Error servlet via urllib in a Python script, it hangs at the point of retrieving the page. If I press Ctrl-C, there's nothing in the output file.

Any words of advice about what's going on and how I could fix it?  I'm trying to write a cheesy automatic test for a servlet page that will simply look for the presence of the traceback.  What I'm doing as a workaround is assuming that no page will take more than 30 seconds to load (browser and servlet on the same network), and handling an alarm if the timeout is exceeded.

I appreciate any advice or pointers to information you can provide.

Thanks.  By the way, the fancy traceback is a great boon for us--much easier than finding and tailing a logfile.

Cheers!
