#1578 closed defect (fixed)

Possible deadlock when call is adding new media with ICE and STUN enabled

Deadlock may happen if call is adding new media (e.g. adding video) with ICE enabled and more than one worker threads are used. The flow is below:

  1. Call is established with audio only.
  2. Re-INVITE with video is received, on_call_rx_offer() is called, which eventually calls create_ice_media_transport() which works synchronously. The dialog mutex is held by current thread at this point. The current thread then runs pjsua_handle_events() in a loop.
  3. on_ice_complete() is called called with PJ_ICE_STRANS_OP_INIT, which posts the job as timer event.
  4. another thread picks up the timer event, med_tp_timer_cb() is called, which calls acquire_call() and got stuck when acquiring dialog mutex which is being held by the polling thread above.

Thanks Itay Bianco for the report!
