|Title||Possible hang in steptest|
|Assigned user||Gareth Rees|
|Description||See the Travis build on branch 2015-09-04/stack , where the last lines of output are:|
No output has been received in the last 10 minutes, this potentially indicates a stalled build or something wrong with the build itself.
The build has been terminated
There are two problems here:
1. There might be an infinite loop in steptest or worse, in mps_arena_step.
2. We don't get to see the test output (the output went to a temporary file).
|Analysis||We might be able to solve (2) by adding a signal handler to testrun.sh (this would rely on Travis trying to kill us with SIGTERM before using SIGKILL). Or testrun.sh could impose its own time limit.|
