Node Version

Windows node.exe v0.5.6


Occasional AssertionError when using Socket.IO. This makes the windows version of node.js unusable.

Yes, known bug but hard to reproduce reliably. The write requests come back in a different order than what they're sent off in.

@bnoordhuis bnoordhuis was assigned

On windows, this is probably caused by write requests short-circuiting while a previous write has completed but is still in the IOCPs queue.

reverted @piscisaureus test case in cde81a6 - it was causing other tests to fail




This is pretty important to me too

@piscisaureus any update on this? we're passing this in unix-land


test/simple/test-regress-GH-1697.js sometimes fails (and leaves behind a child process) with make test.

Error: connect ECONNREFUSED
    at errnoException (net_uv.js:566:11)
    at Object.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (net_uv.js:557:18)
Command: out/Release/node /home/bnoordhuis/src/nodejs/node/test/simple/test-regress-GH-1697.js

Probably a timing issue.


The bug appears in v.0.5.8 too. It reproduced easy when send long responses (1Mb, chunked or with Content-Length):

function long_response(request, response) {
    var l = 1000;
    var s = '';
    for(var j=0; j<100; j++){
        s += '0123456789';
    response.writeHead(200, {"Content-Type": "text/plain"});
    for(var i=0; i<l; i++){

Fixed in ed65b7b.
