0000381: EventTicklerProcess blocked by long delay
Even if the EventTicklerProcess gets started on image startup it is blocked by a very long delay in the attached image.

At one time when I looked at the Delay inside the EventTicklerProcess the resumption time was 2982694 and Time millisecondClockValue 2188761, so about 700 seconds delay time.
Windows XP
3.6, 3.7 VM
3.8a(6297)

The Archive seems to be too large. Here is a link to the image:

(Despite the name the image is updated upto 6297)

To see that there is something wrong in 3.8a evaluate this:

Duration milliSeconds: (Sensor eventTicklerProcess suspendedContext receiver resumptionTime - Time millisecondClockValue)

In a 3.7 image I get the expected random values <500ms.
In a saved 3.8a image I get values upto 30 minutes!
An image updated from 3.7 to 3.8a (without saving the image) gives something like that:

-0:01:10:01.905

Yup, it looks as if the event sensor delay was just active when the timer interrupt got restarted. Simply evaluating:

   EventSensor install.

Should do the trick - ar.

Didn't this get resolved? Or was I imagining the emails?

The bug reported for 3.7 in 0000371 gets correctly fixed with update 6293.
In my bugnote there I confused the bug with the one I now reported here for 3.8a in 0000381

Seems to be fixed in 3.8b(>=6461).
