Default Bug#464591: linux-source-2.6.24: kill -9 is a nop

Package: linux-source-2.6.24
Version: 2.6.24-1
Severity: normal
File: linux-source-2.6.24

this bug report will be dismissed as useless, but it's important to
document the existence of the bug.

a process, index++, which uiam is part of swish++, consumed 100% of
cpu. kill -1 failed. all values of nice worked, smoothly increasing
or decreasing cpu usage.

but kill -9 had no effect. an infinite loop of kill -9 had no effect.
rm on the file being written hanged. ext3. autocomplete on the file
hanged. ls on the dir eventually failed although it worked before.
other processes worked. telinit q and telinit 2 did nothing. perhaps
they are supposed to. i am just reporting the facts.

go ahead and dismiss this. but it'll be here for people to search and
perhaps somebody with a clue about the cause will find it useful.
