While running ‘guix pull’, sometime between the actual ‘git pull’ (via
Guile-Git) and channel authentication, I saw the dreaded libgc warning:
Repeated allocation of very large block
I forgot to capture the command output though, and it does not seem to
be reproducible. (This is with a recent Guix,
Running the command below from a Guix checkout, which authenticates 15+K
commits, isn’t enough to trigger it:
guix git authenticate --cache-key=whatever \
"BBB0 2DDF 2CEA F6A8 0D1D E643 A2A0 6DF2 A33A 54FA"
So it might rather be ‘update-cached-checkout’ that triggers it.
If you experience it, please share the command line and command output!
