Race condition preventing initialization on first run

Reported by: trev Assignee: trev

Chromium 28.0.1489.0 (196342). This might affect current Chrome versions as well sometimes but Chromium 28 is where we can reproduce this consistently.

How to reproduce

  1. Switch Chromium into developer mode and install Adblock Plus as unpacked extension from the devenv directory.

Observed behaviour

No first-run page appears and no subscriptions are added. This seems to be caused by a race condition - FilterStorage manages to initialize (call IO.statFile() and discover that patterns.ini is missing) before background.js gets a chance to add its listener for the load notification.

Expected behaviour

First-run page should appear and subscriptions should be added.
