Various Backtraces

This currently always happens with my dbgutil master build.

To reproduce have three consoles and run:
1. make debugrun (wait for start)
2. make gb_JunitTest_DEBUGRUN=T JunitTest_sc_unoapi
3. make gb_JunitTest_DEBUGRUN=T JunitTest_sw_unoapi

This always results in a deadlock in the document close path: SwXTextDocument::close

It's independent from the VCL backend.

Even more disturbing are the transaction manager warning I see a few times before the deadlock:

warn:fwk:21902:39:framework/source/fwi/threadhelp/transactionmanager.cxx:271: TransactionManager...: Owner instance already closed. Call was rejected!

The attached document also contains a backtraces for these warnings. All of them are the same.

note: i've just removed the 25% of framework::Gate that was unused on master to make it easier to understand

* the only way the Gate can be "closed" so that the thread will
  block in Gate::wait() is if another thread calls
  N times and blocks before calling N times

  unregisterTransaction() does not throw anything

  the only calls to both functions are from TransactionGuard
  which is RAII and only used on the stack

=> the main thread blocking on SolarMutex cannot be immediate cause of the deadlock

* a self-deadlock is possible with Gate, but the only framework
  function on the blocking thread's stack is Frame::close()
  which already releases its TransactionGuard

either some other thread is in framework code, or perhaps
the "lost wakeups" cited in osl/conditn.hxx are to blame?
Comment 2 Stephan Bergmann 2015-06-04 12:41:59 UTC
The problematic part is the sequence of steps


in Gate::wait; if an m_aPassage.set() followed by an m_aPassage.reset() would happen in between those two steps, it would keep on waiting despite the call to set().

However, as each call to m_aPassage.reset() is apparently paired with a later call to m_aPassage.set(), it looks like that should not be an issue here.

I cannot reproduce the deadlock.  And the backtraces of the two threads provided are apparently not enough to find the cause.

Jan-Marek, if you can still reproduce, please provide backtraces of all the threads in the process.

I can't reproduce anymore.
