[Bug 1526209] Re: [regression] Clients of nested Mir servers silently crash/exit instantly


So my problem noted in #8 was just a mis-match of packages on my system.
Cannot reproduce with xenial + silo 021, nor with on-system builds of
lp:mir, lp:mir/0.18, or lp:mir/0.17.

After standup today, it seems like we weren't able to reproduce the
problem, provided that we had updated systems, and were using the
(unintuitive) --vt switch properly (which became a bit more unintuitive
starting at 3098). Hopefully everyone else comments below with further
details of their testing.

The decision in the standup today was to proceed with release

  This happens in Mir trunk lp:mir and lp:mir/0.18, but not in

    sudo bin/mir_demo_server_minimal -f /tmp/outside &
    sudo bin/mir_proving_server -f /tmp/inside --host-socket=/tmp/outside &
    sudo bin/mir_demo_client_egltriangle -m /tmp/inside

  And the client silently exits with return code 139.

  Valgrind or gdb show the problem though:
