I wonder is it just as simple as the redisplay structures being
inconsistently marked as GC roots through the kkcc descriptions? That might
fit with my never seeing the crash on this TTY-only NEWGC build. Though it
should provoke the same crashes on a KKCC non-NEWGC build, which we don’t
Are you looking at this problem? From your description it sound like an easy
thing to test but that is just me counting the number of lines describing the
issue! (One line describing the problem = easy thing to fix!) Or is there not
an inconsistency that should be viewed as bug?
I mean that the reason we don't see the crashes might be that it is hard to
get this error in the first place. I can't recreate it on the machines that I
have available so it is tricky to get and of course even trickier to know if
it is solved.
Maybe, if I could get a patch with this fix I could get the reported, who gets
the error, to test this!?
