Recently we noticed that reloading the Access Security configuration (acf file) in 126.96.36.199 by calling asInit() from the IOC shell (after iocInit) causes the IOC shell to hang.
The reload seems to hang in the asCaStop routine, at epicsThreadMustJoin.
I remembered vaguely this discussion
https://code.launchpad.net/~epics-core/epics-base/+git/Com/+merge/361379 which seems to be related but I cannot recall the reasons for this change.
My amnesia aside, can somebody either verify if this is an issue/regression, is there some configuration to do, or if this is intentional? This is not hugely urgent, the security implementation
works nicely, just that the reload does not work as it used to and as the documentation still claims.
