Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499097
Python thread may hang during subprocess
Last modified: 2013-04-12 12:28:52 EDT
Description of problem:
subprocess may hit a deadlock if another thread is doing import at the same
see http://bugs.python.org/issue5912 for details.
In most cases this bug occur at the system startup. Theoretically it can happen
any time because there are function level imports.
An easy work arround is to avoid function level imports in the subprocess path
(in the subprocess implementation).
