Ah right, thanks.  I added a restore_signals=True argument to Popen in Python 3.2's subprocess module that does what you want:


The way to emulate that in earlier versions is to use a preexec_fn to restore the signal handler for SIGPIPE to SIGDFL.

You can also use backport of 3.2's subprocess module available here: http://code.google.com/p/python-subprocess32/

resolution:  -> wont fix
status: open -> closed
