Re: Jigsaw confused by large numbers of files.

I have seen Jigsaw 2.0.3 appear to hang when image files are requested.
The Solaris snoop program tells me that the request did reach the machine.
In trace mode, Jigsaw does log receipt of the request. Jigsaw
continues to serve other directories and files just fine when this happens.
It isn't always the same directory, and there aren't many files in the
directory. Removing everything under the config directory (including stores)
and painfully recreating everything using JigAdmin did not make the problem
go away. I have seen this hang with Netscape 4.5 and 4.6 and IE4, and also
at work where we browse through a proxy.

The images are under one of my own custom resources, which logs that it is
calling super.lookup(ls,lr) and never logs the return from that call.

The request looks like this:

GET /music/bands/images/214/tn_walk1_jpg.jpg HTTP/1.0

"bands" is my custom resource which extends HttpDirectoryResource. The call
to super.lookup on "images" is apparently not returning in this case (though
most of the time even for this same GET it works just fine).

When this happens I kill and restart the server.
