Bug#649196: test suite failure on kfreebsd-*: timeout in /gthread/spawn-multithreaded
The test suite of glib2.0 2.30 reliably fails on kfreebsd-* .
Aside from various failing tests, the most important issue is the
deadlock in /gthread/spawn-multithreaded which causes the build to be
terminated after 150 minutes of inactivity.
Sjoerd tried to reproduce this issue on a porter box (io.debian.net),
where he ran the test case in a loop. But aside from a crash, he could
not reproduce the deadlock.
I myself built glib2.0 several times in KVM based VM but was not able to
reproduce it either.
So we would appreciate help by the kfreebsd porters on this issue.
We decided to disable the test suite on kfreebsd-* in 2.30.2-3 for
now, but would like to re-enable it again.
