The ReleaseClaim job attribute is an undocumented feature that was meant to facilitate testing the shadow and starter daemons without a schedd. It wasnât intended for use with shadows running under a schedd. Even after fixing this bug, I think youâll encounter
other problems. When thereâs a schedd, the code expects the schedd to handle the releasing of claims.
Iâm also looking at your underlying problem with the schedd/shadow trying to reuse a dead claim in the startd.
