Hello All and Merry Christmas,
I've found a bug and verified it with several of my
Slackware fanatics: it seems that Pil 1.1.7 (python 2.6.4 )
when you do a Image.open('image').show()
ImageShow seems to call every available viewer from _viewers on your
system which on mine and a lot of other systems means it builds a
separate tempfile and calls xv and display with them.
It's been reported the same stuff happens on freebsd where imagemagick's
display and xv is available, which i guess are all the available
_viewers (did some pdb on it, but my knowledge of pdb is rudimentary at
I'm not sure if this is a bug but the docs mentions it should start the
default viewer (usually xv) and not viewer*s*
it's annoying to say the least.
PS: Happy New year's and i hope i didn't offend anyone or didn't follow
the net etiquette, since the only mailing list I've ever used is the one
which is used at work.
