Is there a changelog available(upstream or debian)?
126.96.36.199beta-1 is buggy when calling external processes. I have a program
that makes several pipes. When 1.4 then forks/execs the external process, it
doesn't close all these pipes correctly. lsof shows 0,1,2 open, plus 29, 30,
32, 34, etc. Those higher descriptors are not closed, and this causes a
deadlock, as they are pipes.
sun 1.3, ibm 1.3, ibm 1.4 have no problems.
