New submission from Benjamin Ryzman <benjamin+python at ryzman.fr>:


Is it deemed acceptable that setting up one's own SIGCHLD handler breaks communicate()?

I did not find it in the documentation.

With the above workaround one can mix communicate() processes with processes spawned in the background that one's too lazy to wait for.
