The retries are happening when no other reason exists to
trigger things -- like arrival of a new message to the same
I have been reworking some core algorithms of the scheduler
lately; to large extent turned thread state algorithms upside
down - simplifying things same time, and more importantly,
creating a real consistent state-oriented behaviour.
At the same time I think I have finally understood, why ETRN
systems have been reported to have non-ideal behaviours.
(Basically the thread-completition code does "switch to other
thread, and start it" unconditionally - so QUEUEONLY does
break at that point.)
Oh yes, that also - somewhat - relates on the surprising amount
