Fix deadlock in tests #2043

commented May 28, 2019

On Windows (at least) when running the tests it would often crash on node.fork_bootstrap_flip among other tests due to a mutex being locked which is already locked higher up in the stack. It is caused by bootstrap_initiator.stop () being called while the mutex is locked before the attempt = nullptr call. The attempt is holding the last reference to the node shared_ptr which may already have been stopped by the system::~system destructor which explicitly calls node->stop (). It then eventually calls bootstrap_initiator.stop () which leaks to a deadlock. There's probably a few ways to solve this, but this could be a problem with other node members (I have seen similar errors before) so I decided to add a check in node::stop to see if it has been stopped already before trying to stop again
