After upgrading to 10.2 (and the associated 10.2 Developer
Tools), the 3.1.6 htnotify seems to have major problems. I have
left it running as long as three hours, and it never completes.
It seems to alternate between using excessive CPU and grinding
away on the hard drive. It also grabs a lot of RAM. Top shows
VSIZE at 1 GB. The machine becomes essentially unusable for
minutes at a time.
Any idea on where I might start looking for the problem? I know
very little about htnotify. The executables were built with the
GCC 2 (2.95.2) compiler. It doesn't appear that the compiler
version changed since the last Developer Tool release, so I guess
that implies that a library related problem is likely.
I didn't encounter any problems with the htnotify build from
htdig-3.2.0b4-20020825. Other than the above problem, everything
looks good based on very light testing.
