gdb thread apply all bt full
The code in question is running "git rev-list HEAD" and mono reproducibly hangs itself on reading from this command.
This is the calling code:
protected virtual void ExecuteCommand(string fileName, string arguments,
Action<string> outputHandler, Func<int, string, bool> errorHandler)
StringBuilder error = new StringBuilder();
using (Process process = new Process())
process.StartInfo.FileName = fileName;
process.StartInfo.Arguments = arguments;
process.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = Path;
process.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
process.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;
process.OutputDataReceived += (o, e) =>
if (e.Data != null)
process.ErrorDataReceived += (o, e) =>
if (e.Data != null)
// Error handling omitted
I've attached a gdb thread apply all bt full log from the hanging process.
The hang goes away when I repack the underlying repository, pointing to some kind of timing error?
PS: the new bugzilla is much nicer than novell's!
I'm running mono-2-10/482e406
Please attach a complete test case.

runnable example file
I've packaged the example code into a small executable class. When I run this on Debian squeeze in my mono-2-10 clone/checkout it hangs two out of three times.
I'm using a locally compiled mono-2-10/482e406, I cannot seem to reproduce that against master/ed95f38.

a logfile from the failing and running tests
This is a logfile me running the compiled binary. Note that running the git rev-list takes around a second wallclock time. The processes which are aborted (^C) all were running more than four seconds (and would not return after longer waiting) and sometimes they run through in the expected second.
This behaviour is not reproducable with master, as demonstrated in the lower half of the log.
Can't reproduce with master or mono-2-10 ----Mono JIT compiler version 126.96.36.199 (mono-2-10/2e069b5 Mon Jan 9 11:49:00 EST 2012)----
