Miranda NG process hangs after exiting
« on: 03 05 2019, 10:54:27 »
Hello, this is not a major problem but something like a little worry or nuisance.

When I exit Miranda - either by menu exit or implicitly when restarting after an update, the window closes OK and the tray icon disappears as expected, but Windows task manager shows the process still there. This means Miranda can't get restarted until I kill that process.

This doesn't happen all the time - I'd say about it's about 50/50.

What diagnostic info can I provide to help pinpoint the problem?

I've seen this happen when popup is stuck displaying, but not dismissed correctly.

Which popup? It appears to happen at random here.

By the way, do you know if there are changelogs? I use updater regularly (daily), and it would be interesting to know what the updates are about.

EDIT - I see there are changelogs on site, but for stable versions only.

I periodically copy important commits messages and make a beautiful changelog just before the release

Also you can subscribe by RSS or via Twitter.

riki,
make a network log and paste ~20 trailing lines of it here, if it contains words like 'Killing thread...'

As usual, thanks  @ghazan for the helpful proposal. I still haven't been able to produce such a log.

Apparently, the problem is that when the process hangs, it does so before being able to commit the "Killing thread..." lines to the log. When Miranda closes gracefully, I find these lines in the log. But when it hangs, the log stops before that. I'm still turning on the log each time I shutdown/restart Miranda, so if I fish anything I'll do as you suggested.

Thanks again!

riki,
if Miranda hangs completely before writing these lines, you can use Process Explorer to debug this issue, as described in the Wiki:
https://wiki.miranda-ng.org/index.php?title=Using_Process_Explorer_as_the_debugging_tool

of course, to create a valuable report, you need to have fresh debug symbols for your Miranda (switch to the repo with symbols in Plugin Updater)

I'm on it, updated to version with debug symbols since you replied, but the half dozen times I closed Miranda since then, everything closed nicely. It seems as if Miranda knows you're watching, so it behaves  ;D
Thanks @ghazan!
