Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84232
application bug: screen(4014) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait4.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:08 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel that warns.
2. Run screen.
The place screen sets SIGCHLD to SIG_IGN is only in the exit path; I can't get
the above warning to actually occur.
Could someone else then test 3.9.13-4? Dist-8.0.1-HEAD
The message triggers with 3.9.13-4 as well. It does not trigger for every
startup of screen - i got 1 message out of 3 tries. I'm running screen as
non-root, over ssh. (perhaps this is a factor as well.)
Indeed, it is. Thanks for the additional information. Fix coming ASAP.
The bug seen was in actually in utempter. However, I have closed all obvious
windows where screen could exhibit the buggy behavior. (Exit path, and during
the re-attach process).
3.9.13-5... will be in as soon as it finishes building.
I tested this package a few (50 or so) more times with the latest build of
utempter - everything seems fine. Closing.
