[New-bugs-announce] [issue31308] forkserver process isn't re-launched if it died

New submission from Antoine Pitrou:

It may happen that the forkserver process dies (for example if SIGINT is received because the user pressed Ctrl-C) while the parent process is still alive.  In that case, if the parent tries to create a new Process instance, an exception is received.

The exception looks like this:

  File "/xxx/lib/python3.5/multiprocessing/popen_forkserver.py", line 52, in _launch
	self.sentinel, w = forkserver.connect_to_new_process(self._fds)
  File "/xxx/lib/python3.5/multiprocessing/forkserver.py", line 66, in connect_to_new_process
ConnectionRefusedError: [Errno 111] Connection refused
