Dear Cesar e.a.,

first of all I want to thank you for taking care of msys.
Msys is a great tool and helps us quite a bit!

So we were encountering the same problem that was descibed above.
The problem existed on a computer where the evil Logitech LVPrcSrv.exe process was running.

After upgrading to the latest msys dll snapshot, the problem ALMOST disappeared.
ALMOST means, that the stackdumps are gone. However, one script would still
occasionally terminate abnormally as long as LVPrcSrv.exe was running.
The script defines and accesses "numeric" variables and terminates abnormally
when accessing these variables:
Snippet form the script (full script attached):
01  ...
03  ...
17  if [ $PARAMCOUNT -eq 1 ]
18  ...

Terminates abnormally with the following message.

# ./abcd: line 17: [: -eq: unary operator expected

Please note that the abnormal termination only occurs when LVPrcSrv.exe is running.
It also only occurs every ~10th time the script is executed.

Any hints, why this is happening and what the connection with LVPrcSrv.exe is?

best regards


Here is my msysinfo output:
