CouchDb: Replication halts between two databases and results in a hung erlang process

by Topper on September 10th, 2009

We were seeing a json error in the couchdb logs. Apparently 0.9.1 (because of MochiWeb) doesn’t like certain UTF characters. Unfortunately, this causes replication to totally hang. That’s a bummer. It looks like it’s been patched:

http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-333

However, that’s not in the 0.9.1 release.
