Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2014-09-19 18:16:14 UTC
Apparently threadpool threads can be renamed multiple times while non tp threads only once.

We should match this behavior as we got ppl relying on it.

Fixed in master.
Comment 2 Ram Chandra 2014-12-01 11:04:03 UTC
I have checked this issue with following builds and observed that I am still able to rename thread pool threads but the non thread pool thread I can set only once.

Mac OS X 10.10.0
Xamarin Studio: 5.7 (build 596)
Mono 3.12.0 ((detached/b75fa2b)
GTK+ 2.24.23 (Raleigh theme)

I am still getting the same behavior but I am unable to reopen this issue because the status of bug is non editable for me.
Comment 3 Zoltan Varga 2014-12-01 11:06:16 UTC
That is the correct behaviour.

Comment 6 Alex Rønne Petersen 2016-04-08 04:39:13 UTC
I don't believe that this is true. I am not able to rename a TP thread more than once on MS.NET. So I've included a revert of this behavior in this PR: https://github.com/mono/mono/pull/2853
Comment 7 Alex Rønne Petersen 2016-08-30 04:55:24 UTC
The PR has been merged, so marking this as fixed.
