New submission from Paul Moore: When running the test suite on Windows, test_socket_ssl hangs.
After a bit of investigation, it appears that the test is hanging at line 184 (if self.s.stdout.readline() != "ERROR\n":) in OpenSSLServer._external. The problem is that the test assumes it can read a line of stdout from the openssl.exe process. However, the openssl.exe on my PC (from the GnuWin32 project) appears to buffer its output, so the Python process deadlocks waiting for a response. An easy (if clumsy) fix is to simply skip the check on the output of the server. I have attached a patch which does this for win32 only (on the assumption that other platforms don't have this issue). I guess that other openssl builds don't have the same problem - however, I can't see an easy way of testing for this. ---------- components: Tests files: test_socket_ssl.diff messages: 57768 nosy: pmoore severity: normal status: open title: test_socket_ssl hanhs on Windows (deadlock) versions: Python 2.6 Added file: http://bugs.python.org/file8796/test_socket_ssl.diff __________________________________ Tracker <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> <http://bugs.python.org/issue1489> __________________________________
