Description Kurtis D. Rader 2005-02-21 17:39:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041002 Firefox/0.10.1

Description of problem:
The pdksh properly propagates SIGHUP to the foreground process group. The AT&T ksh does not.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh to the system
2. exec /bin/ksh
3. /usr/bin/top
4. "kill -1" the original ssh client

Actual Results:  The ksh and top processes continue running.

Expected Results:  The ksh process should propagate SIGHUP to the top process then terminate.

Additional info:

Bug also exists in the RHEL 4 ksh-20040229-12.i386.rpm package.

A strace shows that upon receipt of SIGHUP from the sshd process ksh sends a SIGCONT to the foreground process group. It then calls waitpid(-1,,WUNTRACED). Since the status of the foreground process doesn't change the waitpid() doesn't return.

FWIW, the AT&T ksh which ships with DYNIX/ptx simply propagates the SIGHUP to the foreground process group (like pdksh does) then terminates itself by setting SIGHUP to SIG_DFL then sending itself another SIGHUP.
