17:28 <antrik>: fifo does crash as well, though not as fast
17:29 <antrik>: and Neal's patch doesn't change the situation

02:31 <antrik> interesting: running "cat /dev/zero|cat >/dev/null" for a while completely freezes the system
19:54 <antrik> hm... cat /dev/zero|cat >/dev/null crashes the machine also if done in a chroot...
How long does this take?
20:20 <antrik> tschwinge: not sure exactly. must be something between 15 minutes and an hour I'd say
11:49 <antrik> if instead of doing "cat /dev/zero|cat >/dev/null" (pflocal) I use tcplisten/tcpconnect (pfinet) or a fifo, there is no crash
13:41 <antrik> a simple "cat /dev/zero >/dev/null" doesn't crash either
13:44 <antrik> so, any volunteers to find out why pflocal crashes Mach? :-)
13:44 <antrik> (or at least it crashes the whole system even if run in a subhurd...)

Perhaps related to the pflocal patch by Neal that is in the Debian package?
