That difference is clear to me now: set_periodic with a start date !=
XN_INFINITE means "suspend the task immediately until the provided
release date" (RTFM...) while date == XN_INFINITE means "keep the task
running and schedule the first release on now+period".

The actual problem seems to be related to sending SIGKILL on
rt_task_delete to the dying thread. This happens only in the failing
case. When xnpod_suspend_thread was not called, the thread seems to
self-terminate first so that rt_task_delete becomes a nop (no more task
registered at that point). I think we had this issue before. Was it
solved? [/me querying the archive now...]
