Test fedmsg in a fresh thread under mod_wsgi #115

We started seeing fedmsg causing the bodhi masher to segfault.

It used to work and think that the update to zeromq3 may have caused the issue. In order to verify, we need to test in an isolated context. If someone could set up httpd with mod_wsgi and write a simple app to test this that would be great. The app needs to #1) spin off a new thread like the bodhi masher, and #2) have that thread try to emit a fedmsg message.

I tried reproducing this issue locally, to no avail.

    WSGIDaemonProcess fedmsg user=apache maximum-requests=1000 display-name=fedmsgtest processes=1 threads=1
    WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/test/test.wsgi

    # If weird segfaults occur sometimes, give this a shot

import threading
import fedmsg

fedmsg.init(name='relay_inbound', active=True')

class Thread(threading.Thread):
    def run(self):
        print("Running thread!")
        fedmsg.publish('fedmsgtest!', {'msg': 'from thread!'})

def application(environ, start_response):
    fedmsg.publish('fedmsgtest, {'msg': 'in wsgi app'})
    t = Thread()
    start_response('200 OK', [('Content-Type', 'text/plain')])
    yield 'foo\n'

Well, we both tried testing this. How do you feel about closing it as WONTFIX since bodhi2's masher won't be running under mod_wsgi?

Fine with me!
