Foregrounding an elinks process stalls it
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem: Foregrounding an elinks process stalls it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): elinks-0.11.0-2.2
How reproducible: Allways
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an elinks
[marado@noori Desktop]$ elinks http://news.google.com
+ Stopped elinks http://news.google.com
[marado@noori Desktop]$ fg 2
<<< stalls here until I kill the process >>>
getting the elinks window on the foreground.
I've noticed this happening for a long long time, so I not only guess that this
is an upstream problem, but it was not "introduced" in any recent version.
if you suspend and bring the process to the foreground again and again,
eventually it will succeed. I can confirm that this has been happening for years.
Yeah, this is pretty old bug and upstream knows about it for year :-(
