Description Michal Hlavinka 2012-03-16 04:27:04 EDT
Description of problem:
there is bug in 2012-01-01+ ksh hangs when application does some dark magic with file descriptors

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
(set some nice memory ulimit, it eats memory quite fast)
ksh -c 'latestver() { rpmdev-vercmp 1 2 >/dev/null; } ; echo $(latestver)'
Actual results:

Expected results:
pass (no output)

Additional info:
rpm* python scripts do something weird with file descriptors, but ksh still should not hang. I was not able to reproduce this with anything different than rpm* python things.
