Testing stops with defunct processes (mserver5?) repeatedly in Aug2011 and default branches on all combinations on sparc (s32, s48, s64) for test/null/null_in_case.sql. As a result, everything hangs for eternity, since Python apparently doesn't receive/handle the signal its child crashed/cored.

As a result, entire testing blocks until the appropriate preap or kills of are done on the build sun.

I think the null_in_case test is probably a red herring.
The very first sql test already ends in a timeout, as do many other tests (at least on GNU-Solaris-sparc).

Very well possible. However, after hours (and even days) of waiting, all testing runs always hang at this particular test.

Changeset 9d839b4fd018 made by Sjoerd Mullender in the MonetDB repo, refers to this bug.

For complete details, see http//devmonetdborg/hg/MonetDB?cmd=changeset;node=9d839b4fd018

Changeset description:

When clearing variables also clear eolife field.
Not clearing the field could cause a bogus dependency in the dataflow
scheduler which in turn could cause a circular dependecy among
This fixes bug #2865 and the server timeouts of bug #2888.
(The problem that has with all the hanging servers is not
solved but may not be a problem anymore.)

Changeset 02c039857104 made by Sjoerd Mullender in the MonetDB repo, refers to this bug.

For complete details, see http//devmonetdborg/hg/MonetDB?cmd=changeset;node=02c039857104

Changeset description:

Add assertions about inter-instruction dependencies.
Instructions should only depend on earlier instructions.
These asserts would probably have made finding the problem with bugs
2865 and 2888 a lot easier...
