Error Message: N/A . Stack Trace: N/A . SIGPIPE kills the java process on Java6 SR9 (and SR9FP1), whereas previous releases this signal is ignored.
The core issue is a combination of two APARs and a change pwgetuuid(). APAR IZ86774 : Signal chaining does not work on Linux JDKs APAR IZ73232 : Signal chaining functionality issue Linux kernel reported against : 2.6.18-238.1.1.el5 Upon SDK startup a call is made to pwgetuuid() before the SDK signal handlers are registered. On newer versions of linux, getpwuid() registers a handler for SIGPIPE. The SDK notices that a handler has already been registered for SIGPIPE, and as such, does not register the SIG_IGN handler for SIGPIPE, believing that the application has installed its own.
This defect will be fixed in: 6.0.0 SR9 FP3 6.0.1 GA FP2 5.0.0 SR13 . The JVM has been updated to register the handler for SIGPIPE earlier in the startup sequence to avoid this situation from arising. . To obtain the fix: Install build 20110629 or later
