Earthworm reconfigure failure

Reported by: stefan Owned by: et
Priority: blocker Milestone: Linux
Component: startstop Version: 7.9
Keywords: Cc:


On Linux, if the " Class/Priority?" line is missing after the Process line, reconfigure crashes Startstop. Other Earthworm processes continue to run, but Startstop is dead and will no longer respond to 'status' requests, etc.

(In my case I did a reconfigure with a missing "Class/Priority?" and I _think_ it worked... but then later I added another line properly, with "Class/Priority?", but when I did a reconfigure at this time, starstop cratered as described above

Implemented changes below and successfully tested fix:

libsrc/util/startstop_unix_generic.c, include/startstop_unix_generic.h: Modified 'GetConfig()' function so it returns 'EXIT' instead of calling 'exit()' on error.
