[Python-Dev] setitimer, getitimer wrapper (issue2240)

It has been some time since some discussion happened on
http://bugs.python.org/issue2240, and I intended to compose this email
several days ago but just did it now.

This is an attempt to find someone who might have some
information/idea that could help solving the current problem regarding
the setitimer/getitimer wrapper under FreeBSD (and maybe somewhere
else?). The current problem is that the virtual and prof itimers, in
some occasions, may never finish, and as I remember from talking with
Trent Nelson, the problem showed up when running all the tests but not
when running the test_signal alone.

So, that is it.. any solutions ? :)
