Valgrind and cthreads problem
« on: December 13, 2015, 01:26:05 am »
Hi, I tried to debug a heap corruption with valgrind in a multithreaded freepascal project. It failed with a (for me) wierd error, so I made a minimal program with cthreads:

Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. program Project1;
  2.  
  3. uses cthreads;
  4.  
  5. begin
  6.   writeln('Hello World');
  7. end.
  8.  

Which fails like that (command: valgrind ./project1):

Code: [Select]

==17843== Your program just tried to execute an instruction that Valgrind
==17843== did not recognise.  There are two possible reasons for this.
==17843== 1. Your program has a bug and erroneously jumped to a non-code

==17843==    warning about a bad jump, it's probably your program's fault.
==17843== 2. The instruction is legitimate but Valgrind doesn't handle it,
==17843==    i.e. it's Valgrind's fault.  If you think this is the case or
==17843==    you are not sure, please let us know and we'll try to fix it.
==17843== Either way, Valgrind will now raise a SIGILL signal which will
==17843== probably kill your program.

Without cthreads valgrind works fine, but this is the first time I use valgrind so maybe I miss debug-packages for something other than glibc? Are others having the same error and this is a bug to be reported to either valgrind or freepascal? Or is this just me being stupid?

Additional info: I use fpc-3.0.0 on Gentoo Linux (amd64) with glibc-2.22

After some sleep and research I realized it is a valgrind bug, which pops up whenever dynamic linking is used.
