Subject: deadlock with bad ownership of temporary directory
Version: Audacity v1.3.2-beta (Unicode) (on gentoo)
If audacity is started with an already existing /tmp/audacity1.2-$LOGNAME, with
another owner than the current uid audacity will deadlock upon stopping a
1. create the directory /tmp/audacity1.2-$LOGNAME using some diferent user, och
change ownership of that directory
2. start audacity
3. hit the record button
4. hit stop
At this point audacity will stopp redrawing. Interrupt in the terminal starting
audacity terminates it.
Secondly if, one during the recording instead of hitting stop starts to select
portions of the sample, or does other things with the sample autdacity will
start to output loas 2048 samples repetedly, and will eventually crash with a
segmentaion fault. This is not 100% reproducable.
