while loop breaks in channel code and break condition not met

Here is a summary of what I’ve learned so far:

We have a channel in a channel set that downloads files based on a list provided by our clients.

This list contains as many as 54 packages (collections of files) in it at a time.

The core logic of this channel is as follows:

Loop through the list of packages provided to us (in an INI file)

For each package provided, loop through the list of packages available for download and download it when the two are equal.

After 41 iterations of the outer loop, the while loop exists, even though the break condition hasn’t been met.

Any additional statements after the loop are executed. I’ve told it to print the counters it was using, so this is where the 41 came from.


I did some additional testing in L1 and built a simpler channel that gives the same effect. This one stops after about 88 iterations with 250 files available. Attached is the worklist export. I also saw it download file 1 again after reaching file 45, suggesting some kind of logic breakdown around that point.

As repeat loop can't handle more events inside the loop.
