Thank you to those who have submitted bug reports so far. I have
addressed some bugs and uploaded version 1.4.4 of ‘python-daemon’ to
PyPI. Changes include:
* Catch and report some OSError exceptions thrown by various steps.
* Wait until later in the daemonisation process to cloase all open
file descriptors. This gives a chance to see errors reported earlier
in the process!
* Redirect standard streams to the null device if no stream specified.
Testing and feedback is still welcome, I want to knock this PEP and
implementation into better shape.
