It just so happens that I came across a method in the Menu tracking code that I thought was curious and should deadlock in certain situations. And indeed there is a ticket within the next day... :-)

(gdb) bt
#0  0x002fc0c7 in BMenu::_NextItem () from /boot/system/lib/
#1  0x002fd4d7 in BMenu::_SelectNextItem () from /boot/system/lib/
#2  0x002feb8c in BMenu::KeyDown () from /boot/system/lib/
#3  0x00365984 in BWindow::DispatchMessage () from /boot/system/lib/
#4  0x00309343 in BPrivate::BMenuWindow::DispatchMessage () from /boot/system/lib/
#5  0x00361de9 in BWindow::task_looper () from /boot/system/lib/
#6  0x002ade0e in BLooper::_task0_ () from /boot/system/lib/
#7  0x005eee6c in thread_entry () from /boot/system/lib/
#8  0x78594fec in ?? ()

When the method has no other item to go to, it will loop forever.

Not deadlock, I mean busy-loop... sorry.

Fixed in hrev36813. I've also noticed the cached menu window thread can deadlock when trying to close a submenu by pressing Esc. That's a different issue, though.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
