Description:Run latest SVN trunk 1.4.   Connect with astman or similar.  Attempt to make SIP call from one channel to another.   Program segfaults inside pthread_kill, called from unref_event in main/manager.c.   From the look of it, the handle passed to pthread_kill (accept_thread_ptr) is never set or used anywhere in the system, so not too surprising it segfaults.

I could give you more debug output but this code is pretty obviously wrong so I doubt you need it!  BTW Asterisk reports version 49074 but svn reports "at revision 49411" so I don't know what's up with that.

static struct eventqent *unref_event(struct eventqent *e)
       struct eventqent *ret = AST_LIST_NEXT(e, eq_next);
       if (ast_atomic_dec_and_test(&e->usecount) && ret)
               pthread_kill(accept_thread_ptr, SIGURG);
       return ret;


Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

could you please upload the change as a patchfile?

Sorry, I don't have a patch.   I just am indicating where the segfault is, and noting it's pretty obvious the code is wrong, since pthread_kill is being called with the variable accept_thread_ptr which is never initialized or used anywhere else in the code tree.   I don't know what this code does or how it is invoked, myself, since the stack traceback starts at this function, presumably a callback.

Duplicate of ASTERISK-8443.  Already fixed in trunk.
