Subject: texmacs: [maxima interface] Long loops get interrupted (and input/output sequence gets broken)
Date: Thu, 26 Jul 2007 17:37:34 +0200
Package: texmacs
Version: 1:1.0.6.10-1
Severity: normal


Hi,

This is apparently a bug of the TeXmacs interface to Maxima and not of Maxima itself, since I can't reproduce it running Maxima in a terminal.

The easiest way to find it in my system is starting the Maxima interface and entering, for instance,

  for i : 0 thru 100000 do display( i );

The sequence of displayed numbers gets interrupted (at i=2083), the input prompt appears, but then the previous loop continues regardless of the 
new input, and a) gets interrupted again, or b) hangs TeXmacs, or c) ends the loop BUT the mismatch between input and output persists, a big 
nuisance.  The interruption point seems to be loop-dependent (earlier if the body of the loop is more demanding,) so it is perhaps a memory issue.

Versions of the relevant packages: 

  maxima 5.10.0-6
  gcl    2.6.7-34

Thank you in advance,

Miguel
