Description Dmitry Vyukov 2011-06-22 03:55:08 PDT
The problem is with
void DatabaseTaskSynchronizer::waitForTaskCompletion()
    if (!m_taskCompleted)

Since POSIX condition variables are amenable to spurious wake-ups, waits must always be expressed as loops. Current implementation leads to premature returns from waitForTaskCompletion() and subsequent bad memory/stack corruptions. I observe crashes like:

There are a lot of similar crashes in the crash database, but due to the nature of the bug it's difficult to match them.
In order to fix it, replace 'if' with 'while'.

Btw, the bug is found with GCC-ThreadSanitizer which forces such bugs to occur more frequently. Below are usage instructions for GCC-ThreadSanitizer if you are interested:

Proposed patch

Actually a statement about how it isn't testable (or how it is covered by existing tests) would have been better for the ChangeLog, but ok.
