Sorry, I should have been clearer.
I meant that setup's progress simply stopped. I could still cancel it,
so it was still responding to mouse events. Also, the system CPU load
was low, and the network traffic was low.
I'd be willing to try a debug snapshot. I haven't used gdb to debug
I assume I run ps and use the PID, not the WINPID to attach to?
What are the commands to list threads, and attach to a thread?
Or do you simply say "thread apply all where" ?
