Description Barry K. Nathan 2003-07-30 08:19:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
Sometimes Mozilla spawns netstat processes that become defunct. I don't yet know
what circumstances cause this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mozilla-1.4-12, net-tools-1.60-18.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Mozilla.
2. ???  :(

Actual Results:
[root@i5000e root]# ps -ef|egrep '([n]etstat|[m]ozilla)'
barryn    1787     1  2 00:07 ?        00:01:43 /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/mozilla-bin
-UILocale en-US
barryn    1807  1787  0 00:07 ?        00:00:00 [netstat <defunct>]
[root@i5000e root]#

Expected Results:
[root@i5000e root]# ps -ef|egrep '([n]etstat|[m]ozilla)'
barryn    1787     1  2 00:07 ?        00:01:43 /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/mozilla-bin
-UILocale en-US
[root@i5000e root]#

Additional info:

I'm sorry that this report is so vague, but this is all I've been able to come
up with so far. If I can figure anything else out, I'll post more comments to
this bug.

Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2003-08-26 18:55:06 UTC
It's intentional.  It's part of how the SSL libraries generate random
information for the crypto routines.
