Sadly, I will not be able to set up a build slave, as I do not have a
machine that is accessible from the general internet. Also, the HP
testdrive machines cannot make outgoing connections, so they would
not be able to do checkouts.
However, I am still interested in finding a solution to #608. If we
can come up with a patch that fixes the problem on HP-UX w/o breaking
anything on any other platform, would that be sufficient? You could
then test that it does no harm, at least, and I could test whether
the fix actually works on HP-UX.
What approach would you recommend in troubleshooting the problem--is
there built-in debugging that can be turned on that might give me
some more detailed information, or do I need to start adding log or
Again, any help would be appreciated.
