#587 rxapi crash at revision 4300



There is a repeatable crash in rxapi at revision 4300. It's probably always been there, I just threw in the 4300 so the bug title would be unique.

I'm stumped with it, so it will probably need your touch. I've attached a zip file with the stuff to recreate it.

What makes it hard, for me, is that it only happens with a release build. I can run the program that causes the crash under a debug build a thousand times and it never crashes.

The zip file has source and a simple make file, also the compiled executable.

The executable uses RexxStart() in a loop to run the included simple Rexx program 5 times. Run the program from the command line several times in a row. On the third execution from the command line, at the first invocaton of RexxStart(), it always crashes in rxapi.

I threw in a copy of the stack at the time of the crash, I always have the exact same stack. I can trace the sequence using the rxapi map file. It always goes:

processMessages -> dispatch -> createSessionQueue ->

queue = new DataQueue(session);

then a malloc in rxapi and a crash down in the kernel.

But, from there I'm stuck.

    Rick, the program doesn't crash on 64-bit Windows. I should have tried that before.

    Rick's commit, revision 4306 fixes this.
