Description Jeff Moyer 2006-02-03 10:58:35 EST
Description of problem:

Of course you shouldn't do this, but if you try to add an observer to frysk, it
hangs.  I get this on the terminal:

click : frysk.gui.monitor.ProcData@4e0f110
Exception in thread "Thread-2" ptrace.attach: Operation not permitted (process 6707)
   at java.lang.Exception.Exception() (/usr/lib/libgcj.so.6.0.0)
   at java.lang.RuntimeException.RuntimeException() (/usr/lib/libgcj.so.6.0.0)
   at java.lang.Thread.run() (/usr/lib/libgcj.so.6.0.0)

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install frsyk
2.  as a user, sudo frysk
3.  add any observer for the frysk process
Actual results:
frysk hangs

Expected results:
the observer is not added, but the app continues to run (maybe displays a warning?)
