User Agent: Steps to reproduce: 1. start firefox under gdb 2. open testcase.html, click on browse-button, switch to /tmp, cancel dialog 3. start file generation and deletion in /tmp (using test.sh) Actual results: gdb reports thread creation/destruction messages as long as files are generated in /tmp [New Thread 0x... (LWP ..)] ... [Thread 0x... (LWP ...) exited] Expected results: Do not create/destruct threads when nothing observes the directory.
