<gg0> seems fifos started dying, as they should. am i wrong? <gg0> ( http://bugs.debian.org/629184 ) <azeem> so you're saying the bug should be closed? <azeem> best to comment on the bug then <gg0> i didn't hear anyone working on it, so i'm a bit surprised <azeem> could be due to lower-level fixes to glibc or so <gg0> and given often(:|) i'm wrong, i was asking <pinotree> in two years there have been various changes in glibc and hurd <pinotree> (for example the switch to pthreads) <gg0> yeah seems fixed. mknod'ing one then removing it, doesn't leave any process around <gg0> cool <azeem> then please follow-up on the bug and/or close it <gg0> sure <gg0> the pleasure of closing it/them is yours <gg0> great job, whatever you did :)
