Mantis: build 1.4.2-rc-b22
Platform: SunOS 5.7
XrunLIB: hprof:heap=all
VM: -server
VM_ARG: [ -Xint | -Xmixed | -Xcomp ]
Appl: SwingSet2

Requesting heapdumps (ctrl-\) while running the SwingSet2 demo with the -Xrunhprof:heap=all library; the VM will core dump.

Here is the command line that I entered: 

"java -jar -server -Xint -Xrunhprof:heap=all $JAVA_HOME/demo/jfc/SwingSet2/SwingSet2.jar" 

Then start taking heap dumps (ctrl+\) immediately. From my testing, the VM crash will usually happen during the startup of the SwingSet2 app (sometimes before the SwingSet Splash screen is displayed).

Alternatively, you can also try substituting the '-Xint' with '-Xcomp' as well.

The occurance of this issue can be somewhat sporatic, but consistant enough log this bug.

Below is the output from the VM crash.

EVALUATION commit this bug to 1.4.2_02 ###@###.### 2003-06-06 this problem seems to be in RootElementForFrame::add_root allocate _roots array in resource area (although the data of the array in c heap). this add_root is called by some oops_do so i guess the sometimes the memory is freed after the call is returned. i havent figured out which oops_do actually free it but i think the safe way is to allocate it on heap. ###@###.### 2003-07-11
