Stack overflow in VBoxSvc debug builds on Windows

Reported by: IndyJones Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 5.1.14
Keywords: vboxsvc, stack, overflow, debug Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows

Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

When running a debug build of VBoxSvc on Windows host a crash occurs due to a stack overflow. The overflow is caused by an endless recursion started by CComCriticalSection. CComCriticalSection creates a critical section that calls Log (in rtThreadAdopt) which again later on locks a critical section and so on and so on.

The problem is that CExeModule is defined as a global variable in svcmain.cpp and when its constructor is called RTR3InitExe has not been called yet. This was fixed in r60865 but was reintroduced in r62701.
