#1191 new defect

testing: cron is taking 100% CPU

Reported by: jipeye Owned by: ainulindale

Component: SHR Image Version: SHR-testing
Keywords: Cc:


After a fresh new install (flash) setting current date may corrupt cron so its enters in an infinite loop and take 100 % CPU. Of course this makes FR becoming very slow.

I tried to reproduce this behavior using this script :

date -u -s 200001010000; killall cron; /usr/sbin/cron; for i in seq 1 9; do sleep 10; date -u -s 2010010${i}0000; done ; top

I can't say it shows this issue 100% times but I always got it with 3 runs.
