The problem itself really is a minor one, though I could not find a simple,
suitable way to accomplish it.
Its the following part of the patch:
@@ -716,6 +732,18 @@
xbox = NULL;
+ // we need to check, if the machine running the frontand is the server,
+ // so we cannot simply shutdown, but just detach from it.
+ // The server is responsible for its shutdown
+ clientIsServerHost = (true);
clientIsServerHost is used to determine, if backendhost == frontendhost,
because if it is, you are not allowed to call 'Shutdown' from the frontend,
since the backend/scheduler is responsible for the shutdown then.
So one must find out, if the current frontendhost is a backendhost, too, thats
I (still) really would like to see this in cvs, so if there is anything else
that needs to be done, tell me. I want to keep my hands on the patch and I
want to improve it further if it would be in cvs, but due to its size, its
already quite hard to maintain it off cvs now.
take care, have fun
