bug#21965: 24.5; Emacs freezes when canceling at open file


From: Maneesh Yadav
Subject: bug#21965: 24.5; Emacs freezes when canceling at open file
Date: Thu, 18 Feb 2016 13:46:13 -0800

Apologies to all I haven't ben able to follow up on this more
thoroughly, part of the problem was trying to get the crash to
replicate.  I could do it in a few minutes while I was originally
posting, then as I was getting all the right debug statements in it
got harder and harder.  I decided to just revert to normal use and
wait for it to happen.  Just happened again and I've put all the
debugging info I can here and will try to trace through glib and
figure out what is going on, just putting everything here for
reference.

overrided the following macros in gmain.c (and had to add some curly braces):

#define LOCK_CONTEXT(context) g_mutex_lock (&context->mutex)
#define LOCK_CONTEXT(context) {fprintf(stderr, "MANEESH GLIB DEBUG:
About to LOCK: %p, %s, %d, %s, %p\n", context, __FILE__, __LINE__,
__FUNCTION__,g_thread_self()); g_mutex_lock (&context->mutex);}

#define UNLOCK_CONTEXT(context) g_mutex_unlock (&context->mutex)
#define UNLOCK_CONTEXT(context) {fprintf(stderr, "MANEESH GLIB DEBUG:
About to UNLOCK: %p, %s, %d, %s, %p\n", context, __FILE__, __LINE__,
__FUNCTION__, g_thread_self()); g_mutex_unlock (&context->mutex);}


At the time of crash, an abbreviated summary of stderr:

Inkscape is the only other binary linked to glib that is running, I think:
