Hi Sergei,



When running cfengine 2.2.7 (and before that 2.2.3) (in a jail) on my
FreeBSD 6.3 box the cfservd crashes after client connect.


Sys version

FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE #0: Wed Jun  4
05:22:14 CEST 2008     root at



Last piece of cfservd -d1 output:


LastSeen( reg

IPV4 address


Found address ( for host


GetMacroValue(server,LastSeenExpireAfter): using scope 'server' for variable


WriteDB => -

WriteDB => Thu:Hr02:Min10_15

Transmission empty or timed out...

Transaction Receive [][]


cfservd terminating NULL transmission!

Terminating thread...

***Closing socket 5 from

root at cfengine:~#ldd `which cfservd`

/usr/local/sbin/cfservd: => /usr/local/lib/ (0x8006bd000) => /usr/lib/ (0x8008ef000) => /lib/ (0x800a1a000) => /lib/ (0x800c61000) => /lib/ (0x800d7d000) => /lib/ (0x800f8f000)


It looks like a threading error but I can't seem to figure out what exactly
goes wrong ( a ktrace doesn't reveal anything), any ideas on this or what
debugging do I need to provide to make it more clear.
