Oracle Client Segfaults When User Hits CTRL-C or Closes The Session (Doc ID 1065478.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version: to - Release: 11.1 to 11.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When an OCI application establishes a connection to the Oracle Database, fetches data, and then performs additional non-Oracle related activity, a Ctrl+C causes the application to produce a Segmentation Fault.
If the same non-Oracle related activity is done without establishing an Oracle connection the code works as expected.
