Description Rick Moseley 2007-05-24 21:42:33 UTC
When using the Frysk source window to "Run executable...", the frysk mechanism
ofManager.host.requestCreateAttachedProc is used to start the new task.  If you
do a "ls -la /proc/PID/fd" on the task that you executed you will see that all
of the file descriptors of Frysk are now part of the new task task.

There is supposed to be a way of actiavting a task and having all of the
extraneous fd's closed when the task is forked/execed.

This appears to be fixed thanks to some of Nurdin's file descriptor leak fixes.
