             Summary: TNamedPipeServer race condition in interrupt
                 Key: THRIFT-4283
             Project: Thrift
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: C++ - Library
    Affects Versions: 0.10.0
         Environment: Windows
            Reporter: Jean-Noël Goor

In TNamedPipeServer, there exists a race condition between the 'serve' thread 
and another thread that would attempt to interrupt it.

While the 'serve' thread is waiting for clients to connect, it is blocked on a 
GetOverlappedResult call.

To stop the server, another thread calls the interrupt function that submits a 
CANCELIO operation to the TOverlappedSubmissionThread.

The ::CancelIo function is called, freeing the 'serve' thread with an 
unsuccessful OvelappedResult which then throws and terminate the server by 
deleting the serverTransport_.

All this can happen while the call to interrupt has not yet returned, and even 
the event signaling the execution of the CANCELIO request might not have been 

In our code, this result in unpredictable behavior (mostly detected as stalled).

It is very hard to reproduce in test environment as it consists in a running 
threads race condition.
