[Bug 834] New: Unit tests fail on macosx

http://bugs.orocos.org/show_bug.cgi?id=834

Summary: Unit tests fail on macosx
Product: Toolchain
Version: 2.3.0
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: enhancement
Priority: P3
Component: RTT
AssignedTo: orocos-dev [..] ...
ReportedBy: kiwi [dot] net [..] ...
CC: orocos-dev [..] ...
Estimated Hours: 0.0

Also fail sometimes on Ubuntu. Haven't investigated if is same cause.

The problem only occurs with release builds. Tried MacPorts and a manually
built boost - both v1.42.0 - on Mac OS X 10.6.6. A manually built v1.42.0 did
not have any problems. Possibly a boost problem then ...

I meant to say "Tried MacPorts and manually built boost - both RELEASE v1.42.0
- on Mac OS X 10.6.6. A manually built DEBUG v1.42.0 did not have any problems"

Bug remains in MacPorts boost v1.45.0 release build. And again, works fine with debug build.

I think this belongs on the boost-users mailing list. something got eliminated
(due to NDEBUG or the compiler optimizing). They'll have to fix it or work
around it.

Slightly off topic, but I have noticed several times that ctest computes a test timeout of about 9.9998e+06 (seconds). One of my nightly builds just locked up for hours, due to a unit test not completing. Perhaps we should force ctest to a fixed, but reasonable timeout? Even 5 minutes should be adequate for any one of our unit tests.
