#7501 closed defect (fixed)

ThreadedFileWriter::Open failing to check return value for pthread_create

I've been having problems with updating MythVideo? metadata (see ticket #7450), and decided to dig further into this. I eventually tracked it down to the pthread_create call in ThreadedFileWriter::Open silently failing (in this case, with 'Resource temporarily unavailable'). The system then ends up in a loop when it attempts to flush the data, but has no writer/syncer to do it.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

(In [26165]) Check the output of pthread_create in ThreadedFileWriter::Open() so that we abort a file write if we can't spawn the appropriate writer and syncer threads.

Closes #7501.
