When helping with gzilla, we ran into a problem with forking in gtk apps..
the connection to the X server is kept in the forked child. I tried
closing all file descriptors in the child, but on exit, you recieve an
I'm just wandering what y'all think of a gtk/gdk (I figured gdk cause it's
not really a widget thing..) fork call that will create a child that has
no affiliation with X for doing multi-threaded programming.
I dug through the pthread docs but couldn't find any way to set a thread
to not inherent file descriptors. I know with the clone() call you can do
this, but a lot of pthread implementations are built over fork so..
Anyway, let me know what you think.
