Crash on Fusion shutdown after calling .NET code from an Addin

This may be in the wrong forum, apologies if it is. 


When calling a C++/CLI WinForm from a Fusion add-in with the Visual Studio debugger attached everything works, and my Add-in shows UI and closes without error. Fusion then continues to work normally. However when I then shut down Fusion there is a crash (access violation) that comes from the GC Finalizer Thread. From the callstack, it looks like it is trying to delete a font, but it hits a deadlock.




Now I'm aware that Fusion may not have even had a  GC Finalizer Thread to crash if I hadn't started .NET in my code, but I suspect it's a bug in Fusion's shutdown (possibly GDIPlus being Initialized by .NET and Fusion and Fusion not shutting down with the right token or something). 

I do nothing in my code, aside from launch a WinForm. For a repro, just do exactly what is described here:

If I don't launch a WinForm, but instead Console::WriteLine() or some other C# command, then Fusion exits cleanly. This may have gone unnoticed as you only really see it if you have a debugger attached to Fusion while it's shutting down.

Any advice on anything I'm doing wrong, or suggestions would be very welcome.

Interesting concept!


edit. The forum is very hard to use on a small mobile screen..


Can't say that I can help you with the problem, but here's some random thoughts:

* Fusion uses Qt5 for the GUI. I don't now if they "bypass" Qt anywhere.

* Can you make .net clean up in stop()? I guess it could mess with other. net addins.

* API monitor works like strace, but on Windows. It might tell you what fusions doing (using GDI at all?) . Don't try to trace all APIs at once though 🙂


edit: clean-up: Force GC?
