#2391: interprocess_recursive_mutex doesn't work interprocess
 Reporter: Sergey Samsonik <serge_98_at_[hidden]> | Owner: igaztanaga
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.37.0 | Component: interprocess
  Version: Boost 1.35.0 | Severity: Showstopper
 Keywords: interprocess fork pthread |
 The recursive mutex tests current thread using
 detail::get_current_thread_id(), which in turn uses pthread_self(). The
 latter function returns thread id that unique in context of a process. (As
 least in CentOS 4.6 'm using.) This results in threads from different
 processes not being synchronized. Sometimes it results in asserts (in
 debug build) or exceptions (in release).
 Attached is a small shared memory test that uses fork() which led me to
 finding the problem. Environment and test's output:
