      Description

      The latest drop into MongoDB has introduced a new failure, seen here in a Windows DEBUG test:

      Note: this was a bug sweeping the lookaside table (i.e., discarding historical versions of data). The thread sweeping the lookaside table was using an invalid test to determine what data to discard. As well as the segfault we saw above, this could lead to reads seeing incorrect versions of data.
