>From one script, I'm spawnv'ing another that will launch mpg123 to play a
specified mp3. Problem is that After the second script has launched
mpg123, it'll turn into a zombie process. It doesn't happen when I launch
it from the command line, so there's something wrong with the way I'm
calling it (I believe).
mp3pid = os.spawnv(os.P_NOWAIT, "/oter/playfile.py", ["playfile", filename,
Shouldn't this launch the script without waiting for it to finish?
