Description k.h.c.vanhouten 1999-10-09 11:37:54 UTC
When xjewel is started with it's stdio redirected from and
to /dev/null, it will consume 100% cpu. This is the result
of incorrect arguments to select().
To demonstrate:
xjewel < /dev/null > /dev/null 2>&1 &

(Now watch CPU with xsoview).

I have a patch for this problem.

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-22 18:54:59 UTC
Thank you.  You say you have a patch; could you please use the
"Create a new attachment" feature of bugzilla (you'll see it
under the Summary line) to include it?

Comment 2 k.h.c.vanhouten 1999-11-23 17:31:59 UTC
I couldn't find "Create a new attachment", But here is the patch:

Thanks for the patch, it's been applied.  Please verify it with
xjewel-1.6-12, which should be in the next Raw Hide.
