bug#7951: 23.1; SIG_HUP handler infinite loop?


From: Alan Malloy
Subject: bug#7951: 23.1; SIG_HUP handler infinite loop?
Date: Mon, 31 Jan 2011 11:05:01 -0800
User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101208 Thunderbird/3.1.7

Steps to reproduce:

1. ssh into my machine from somewhere else

2. fire up emacs in terminal mode

3. suspend the emacs process with C-z

4. violently kill the ssh process on the other machine, so that it
doesn't send a clean logout

Symptoms:

The emacs process remains alive on my machine, quickly climbs to 100%
CPU usage, and gradually allocates more and more memory, apparently
stopping at 2GB. It doesn't respond to SIGINT (kill [pid]); I have to
send it a SIGKILL to get my machine back. If I strace the running
process, I get the following lines repeated forever:

gettimeofday({1296499016, 975065}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1296499016, 975102}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1296499016, 975128}, NULL) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [IO], [HUP TERM IO], 8) = 0
ioctl(3, FIONREAD, [0]) = -1 EIO (Input/output error)
kill(1793, SIGHUP) = 0
ioctl(3, SNDCTL_TMR_TIMEBASE or TCGETS, 0xbfc0fba8) = -1 EIO (Input/output error)
ioctl(3, SNDCTL_TMR_TIMEBASE or TCGETS, 0xbfc0fb14) = -1 EIO (Input/output error)
ioctl(3, SNDCTL_TMR_STOP or TCSETSW, {B0 -opost -isig -icanon -echo ...}) = -1 EIO (Input/output error)
write(3, "\7", 1) = -1 EIO (Input/output error)
gettimeofday({1296499016, 975503}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1296499016, 975529}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1296499016, 975555}, NULL) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [IO], [HUP TERM IO], 8) = 0
ioctl(3, FIONREAD, [0]) = -1 EIO (Input/output error)
kill(1793, SIGHUP) = 0
ioctl(3, SNDCTL_TMR_TIMEBASE or TCGETS, 0xbfc0fba8) = -1 EIO (Input/output error)

FD 3 is /dev/tty, if that's relevant. In my limited experience, it
looks like something weird is happening in the SIGHUP handler,
possibly trying to send some data to the disconnected TTY and
repeating when that causes an error. But really I've no idea, so I'll
leave it at that and hope the strace is useful. I'd like to attach GDB
to get a stack trace, but I didn't install from source and it would be
kinda a hassle to switch unless someone tells me that will be useful.
