Solution would be to use poll() if available.

Is this a different bug from #816?

comment:3 Changed 15 years ago by jknight

Yep, this one is about the t.i.process's use of select, rather than the 
select reactor's select.

It is true that the select call in process.py may fail under the described conditions. However, this will only happen on Linux < 2.6.11, a version of Linux which is now relatively old. Since upgrading to a newer version of Linux will avoid the problem, this doesn't seem particularly worth changing.
