Description

Currently the resolver releases the mutex when invoking callback, which may cause crash in these scenarios:

  • destroy from within callback context,
  • destroy while callback is being executed (from any context).

The crash can be avoided by replacing the mutex with group lock (thanks to reference counter functionality provided by the group lock).

Also note that the resolver docs recommends to destroy-recreate the resolver to overcome growing memory problem (see section "Resolver Limitations" in here). With the potential crash scenarios described above, it may not be a simple task for application to destroy the resolver without stopping ioqueue & timer first.
