Description Adam Michel 2013-10-11 15:13:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently shipping byobu version suffers from a race condition in byobu-status which causes continual spawning of hung processes. This situation is a known bug, launchpad bug id included below.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.21

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open two shell sessions
2. Launch byobu in one and leave running
3. ps -ef | grep byobu in the other, will see growing list of byobu-status processes

Actual results:
byobu-status processes spawn until the parent is killed.

Expected results:
Processes should exit.

Additional info:
Unsure which specific release fixes this issue, but current is 5.60 which is quite far ahead of shipping.

In testing repo is latest version of byobu, please test and let me know if that helps
Comment 2 Adam Michel 2014-06-30 13:38:56 EDT
Sorry, I lost track of this as updates solved my issue. Current shipping (
byobu-5.73-4.el6.noarch) works as expected.

Left status as assigned, wasn't sure if I should close it.
