Deadlock on Solaris
I've written a shell backend for openldap and it works quite well.
However, when I start several requests at the same time, my programs start to lock each
other and the whole slapd process locks until I kill all the started programs.
In fork.c in back-shell, it says:
* child could deadlock here due to resources locked
* by our parent
* If so, configure --without-threads or implement forking
* via a surrogate parent.
which seems to be the case when I have multiple threads working at the same time.
The "configure --without-threads" is not really an option, since I have to have parallel processing and as far as I know there is no multiprocess mode (like in Apache) in openldap.
Can anybody tell me what "implement forking via a surrogate parent" means?
As a note; On Linux, I get no locking problems, only on Solaris (2.6). Does anybody know aboout locking problems on HP-UX?
