Bug 42445

GemBuilder for Smalltalk/VW

7.5, 7.4.1, 7.4, 7.3.3, 7.3.2, 7.3.1, 7.3



VW's feature to write stacks to log file causes MNU on server exceptions

VW permits you to edit the method DebuggerService>>logErrorFor:label: to
have error stacks automatically written to a file.  If this change is made,
then on GemStone server error, a inspector on MessageNotUnderstood pops
up, as well as the error notification.


A workaround (not the official patch) can be made:

In the method DebuggerService>>logErrorFor:label:, change the line:
  cp := ContextDumpPolicy new initialize. to read:
  cp := GbxContextDumpPolicy new initialize.

With this change, server side stacks are written to the log, no inspector
pops up, and client side stacks will still write to the file.  With this
workaround, the client side stacks will follow the GBS stack display format.
