abrt-addon-python: The process might hang forever if no one collects the dump it sends
Last modified: 2015-03-02 00:23:16 EST
Description of problem:
The code in write_dump on abrt_exception_handler.py opens a sockets and writes to it without setting a timeout. If for some reason no one picks up the data the program might hang forever while crashing.
Please set a timeout as the process's resources are still being held while it is stuck and cause problems when trying to recover from crashes.
