• No more crashes with -C option

    From Michiel van der Vlist@2:280/5555 to Binkd Team on Monday, May 25, 2020 13:35:24
    Hello Binkd Team,

    Starting binkd with the -C option lets it reload the configuration when the config file or one of its includes changes. Up until now, I did not use this feature as my binkd version often crashed on a config change. This concerns the mingw32 version.

    To test it I provoked it by touching an empty file every five minutes. The file is in the config as an include file. With previous versions it alwasy crashed within the hour.

    I haven't run this test for over a year, but now with 1.1a-104 I thought I'd test again. My test node has been running for over a week now while reloading every 5 minutes. This weekend I upgraded to 1.1a-109 and it is still running without crashing.

    I don't know what you guys did, but it seems this long standing problem has been fixed.

    Thank you.

    Cheers, Michiel
