Default Bug#526620: closed by Arthur Loiret (reply to aloiret@debian.org) ( Bug#526620: False positive from -Wreturn-type)

reopen 526620

This function's return type is required to be 'void *' because it is
passed to pthread_create(); but it never actually returns. However,
gcc-4.4 -Wall generates the following warning for it:

playrtp.c: In function ‘queue_thread’:
playrtp.c:327: error: no return statement in function returning non-void

This is expected behavior, your function is not of type void.

It is not expected behavior to anyone who has read the documentation for
the option.

> Make your function return the NULL pointer to avoid the warning.

Sorry but this suggestion makes no sense. The function never returns so
suggesting it return a null pointer is meaningless.
