Fix rare failure in TestProcessIO

Authored by labath on Sep 2 2015, 9:20 AM.



There was a race condition in Process class, where we would not wait for process stdout to
propagate fully before we would shut down the connection (repro case: slow down the stdio thread
by placing a sleep right at the end of the while loop in Communication::ReadThread). The Process
class already tried to solve this problem by synchronizing with the read thread in
Process::ShouldBroadcastEvent, but unfortunately the connection got closed before that in
Process::SetExitStatus. I solve this issue by delaying the connection shutdown until we get a
chance to process the event and synchronize. Alternatively, I could have moved the
synchronization point to an earlier point in SetExitStatus, but it seems safer to delay the
shutdown until other things get a chance to notice the process has exited.
