#928 closed bug (WontFix)

deluge produces zombie process with link in about window

Reported by: Hew Owned by: andar
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: GTK UI Version: 1.1.6
Keywords: Cc:



When a new browser process is started by clicking on the link in the about window, it is not harvested after it exits. [gnome-open] remains in the process list as zombie/defunct until deluge exits too.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. launch deluge
  2. open the about window by selecting help/about in the menu bar of deluge
  3. click on the url shown

deluge launches gnome-open which starts the browser. the problem is, that gnome-open is not reaped, leaving it in the process table as defunct process: 27440 ? Sl 0:02 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/deluge 27478 ? Zs 0:00 \_ [gnome-open] <defunct>

This seems to be a bug in python and not deluge. You can reproduce this easily enough with the following code:

import webbrowser"")
