No, this problem is gone for me. I use clang as my main compiler on some machines. Please close this.

I have used several apps on 64bit, both on x86 as on sparc, using gcc though. Do you still have problems, Greg? I hope not.

Hello Greg,

I just tried reproducing this on my x86_64 Linux machine with clang, libobjc2, base, gui, back (cairo) and Gorm from last night. In my case, things seem to work fine.
But I remember that a few years back I was having a very similar problem where clang (on x86_64 only) made NSConnection and friends go haywire. It wasn't an exactly well defined problem so eventually somebody did something that made it go away. Unfortunately, I have a hard time digging up the correspondence on that bug.
Are you seeing this on a 64bit or 32bit arch? If it's on 64bit, maybe it could be related to the recent NSNotFound changes in NSConnection (r34884)?

When using clang getting "NSInvalidRecievePortException: invalidated while awaiting reply." for all apps...


1) Build using clang
2) Run an application

Result: You get the exception described above...
Expected: The application should start.

I am not sure what's going on here. All that changes is the compiler, so it's puzzling as to why it doesn't work. I am looking into this, but if anyone else has any clue that would be REALLY helpful.
