Re: a strange problem when openmp with glib ghash

Hi, Lex
Thank you for responding me second time.  I am touched. Sorry i forgot one line.
They are not shared by each thread.
There is a
in the second parallel for.
Therefore they are seperated. But  only add with g hash table it will stop there. If i comment the g hash table code in second loop, it will not stop.  I think it should be some problem with glib.

It is not clear from this code if the hash tables are shared between
threads or if each thread has its own.

If they are shared then you need to do the locking, from Gthread
documentation : "After calling g_thread_init(), GLib is completely
thread safe (all global data is automatically locked), but individual
data structure instances are not automatically locked for performance
reasons. So, for example you must coordinate accesses to the same
GHashTable from multiple threads."

If they are not shared then this is a question for the openmp ML not
the glib ML.
