Hello all,

I am running the current helmut trunk of XaAES/freemint on my Mega STe.
 It seems to have a bug.  If you run something in the background using
heavy cpu load and then run the mouse through the menus it causes some
kind of failure.  It has to be under heavy load and you have to hover

Is it only CPU, no disk-IO? The message-queue- and the mouse-handling in XaAES use root_timeout in the kernel which depends on regular task-switches. With heavy load some timeout-events might occur too late or even get lost. I can see the effect of it on my TT when I copy large files from/to floppy: the keyboard stops working after a few key-strokes. Especially disk-IO might cause significant delays.

What about keyboard in your case?

You could play with SLICES in mint.cnf and give XaAES higher priority to see if it improves.

over a menu option as well.  This happens in any program it seems,
jinnee and toswin2 tested so far.  It's hard to see the message but it
is something like assert curproc->stack_magic != something.  Then it
repeats FATAL ERROR. You must reboot the system until I press a key.

Shouldn't happen.

Any chance to reproduce it on hatari for example?
