I'm running XEmacs 19.14 on AIX 4.1 and 4.2 machines. On some
machines -- mostly notably a laptop running AIX 4.2 -- gnuclient
is exhibiting some rather strange behavior intermittently.
The symptoms are this: running "gnuclient -q filename" will
sometimes give a message like this:
gnuclient: Socket is not connected
gnuclient: unable to shutdown socket
.and the return code is 1.
Strangely, the existing XEmacs *does* open the file. However, I have
code that relies on the return code of gnuclient to determine if an
active XEmacs process exists.
In this case, gnuserv is definitely running, and previous connections
have been successful. But once things get hosed like this, they seem
to stay this way, though restarting gnuserv from XEmacs seems to fix
the problem until it crops up again.
Has anyone seen behavior like this?
