Daniel Thayer commented on BIT-1087:

We already have test coverage for items #2 and #4 (in fact, there was a
Jenkins automated test failure recently that caught #2, but item #4 is only
relevant on platforms where we don't do automated testing).  The tests
exercise the code paths for #1 and #3, but they do not catch these specific
cases currently.

> 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)
