Daniel Thayer commented on BIT-1087:

I found all of these bugs by installing and testing on platforms that we
don't do our automated testing (although the first three do affect all platforms,
these are not new bugs, and so I would be OK with postponing this
until after 2.2).
I also tested this branch on all of the platforms where we do our
automated testing to make sure I didn't break anything.

> This branch fixes several bugs in broctl:
> 1) on Linux, the broctl "top" command output sometimes shows wrong values for memory statistics,
> 2) there is a race condition when the "sendmail" option is an empty string,
> 3) there is a deadlock when broctl runs a local command that produces a sufficiently large amount of output,
> 4) the shell scripts used by broctl are not as portable as they could be (specifically, some commands, such as sed, do not support the same options on all implementations)
