#9135 closed bug (fixed)

net_server always crashes after boot

As demonstrated at BeGeistert 026, net_server always crashes on my laptop a minute or three after booting. Sometimes it's in the iprowifi4965 thread, but most often in the ipro1000 thread.

No idea if it's related to #5668.

Ah right, sorry, we somehow lost track of that one. The reason is not yet clear, though, even though we thought we had understood it. The issue arises when the fork() exits without an exec(): the ICULocaleBackend tries to free some thread local data. Unlike Linux, the TLS is preserved in Haiku when forking. Why it actually crashes we don't know yet.

You should be able to always let it crash by letting it run with the debug heap (ie. MALLOC_DEBUG=pw net_server).

If running net_server with the debug heap would be helpful, is there any way those settings could be incorporated into /data/system/boot/Bootscript? That would make it easier for me to test.

Clarification: by "be incorporated", I mean patched into Bootscript locally, not added to the official tree. IOW, I need some direction here.
