 Thanks for the response.  It has proven quite useful.

To avoid the current problems, we have a  Bad Boys Blacklist (plugins that crash cin5), but it is a comparatively short list.

"Got a link (so I can see if any of them are mine)?"

We did not have rkrlv2 loaded on our test computer, so none of those were on the list.  We loaded onto Fedora and have fixed some cinelerra code to accomodate stuff we did not know about - like a missing so library and buffer size mismatch.  BTW reverbtron is a really nice effect but we have to use it with the simplistic cinelerra default gui because what goodguy sees is that the gui connection is commented out in the ttl files (rkrlv2_ui.so).  Did we miss something?

But having difficulty with knowing how to test schedule_work.  Is there a plugin that uses schedule_work in an obvious way what does not involve using a MIDI or does this thing need a MIDI to be tested?

"It doesn't need midi. The most common use that I know of in plugins is for disk operations which are never realtime safe. Naturally samplers are a common use case but they also use midi typically. I know my rakarrack ports of rkr echotron and rkr reverbtron (https://github.com/ssj71/rkrlv2) are loading files that only affect the audio processing, without any midi at all. They are however not very tested so there may be other issues."

We will be testing these on Glen's AVLinux April release today, at least for now with the simplistic gui.  Would you like us to send any patches or potential problems?     GoodGuy/Phyllis
