Description Sebb 2005-03-11 01:30:22 UTC
If the condition in the While or If controllers is permanently false (so they
don't run any of their children), the test fails with a Stack Overflow error.

For example:

ThreadGroup (forever)
  While (false)

Have failed to find solution so far, so raising bug to document the problem.
Comment 1 Sebb 2005-03-12 13:50:57 UTC
Further testing shows that the Stack Overflow only seems to occur if the While
controller is the only controller in a Loop controller that is set to loop many
times (or indefinitely).

This is unlikely to be the case in normal usage, so reducing priority and
severity accordingly.

Seems to have been fixed (does not appear in r600898)
