Description Dylan Simon 2011-04-04 17:36:11 UTC
My window manager (xmonad) does not restore SIGCHLD signal handling.  This is a bug, and I have reported it there already (

However, the only programs this seems to affect are those run under gjl, which report:
    Execution of 'eselect python show' failed
    Couldn't get needed information.

    signal.signal(signal.SIGCHLD, signal.SIG_DFL)
to the top of /usr/bin/gjl fixes it.  If you feel so inclined, this might be nice to add.
