Re: [JunkMail] Re: Wishes for set ACLs

Deadlocks that BDB detects and reports are acceptable, because there's retry code to handle that. Undetected deadlocks (due to mutexes outside of BDB's control) are the only problem I'd worry about.

And then move the mutex into the chk_crypt routine itself.

Moving the mutex into -lutil might be a bit problematic. The library is designed not to require -lldap_r (or -lldap or -llber).

You could resolve the problem by moving lutil_passwd into

Hm.... OK. We don't need to move lutil_passwd, just the chk_sasl and chk_crypt functions. Since we can register password mechs from outside the library, this is easy enough.

After all fixing, in my very unrealistic testing (massive modification and accessing of the very same two entries by three clients, plus a number of searches) I'm still seeing some deadlocks; would you consider this a problem, or could we consider it acceptable?
