seemingly random "nesting of readline input" warnings
Fri, 1 Nov 2002 15:06:52 -0800 (PST)
Recently, while using R-patched and now R-1.6.1 (on RedHat Linux 7.1) I've
been getting the following warning in the course of everyday activity:
[... some R activity ...]
In addition: Warning message:
An unusual circumstance has arisen in the nesting of readline input.
Please report using bug.report()
The warning is difficult to reproduce because it seems to appear at random
times, usually after I enter about 100 or so commands into the console.
I noticed that the function which produces this warning, `pushReadline' in
src/unix/sys-std.c, was modified on October 16, 2002 in regards to bug
report PR#2165. I can't tell if this change is the source of the warning
bit I don't ever recall seeing this warning on earlier versions.
I build R from source using the readline-devel-4.1-9 package which came
with my system.
