Re: Bug in Python3 ('tempfile', 'subprocess', '_hashlib')
Thank you guys for your help. I did a full rebase to no avail. But
this now looks like an issue specific to my machine, I asked some of my
colleagues to run some tests on their PCs and they cannot reproduce this
issue either. I could try to reinstall Cygwin from scratch, but I am
going to update to a new machine soon and my workaround allows me to
keep going for the time being, so I have decided it's not worth spending
any more time on this, unless someone feels this could be of general
interest. Thanks again for your assistance.

Using freshly-updated Cygwin 64-bit under Windows 7 Enterprise Ver 6.1

The execution of the following script:
always results in 'BlockingIOError: [Errno 11] Resource temporarily
I saw this error first in a script that imported 'tempfile' together
with 'subprocess' (in any order):
I then managed to narrow down the problem to the '_sha3' module.
Notice that you need to import both '_hashlib' and '_sha3' *in that
order*. If I swap the order and import '_sha3' before '_hashlib', the
error becomes sporadic, sometimes it happens and sometimes not.
This problem makes it impossible to use 'tempfile' and 'subprocess' in
the same script. My workaround is currently to disable '_sha3' in
'/lib/python3.6/hashlib.py' by adding at line 62:
__always_supported = __always_supported[0:8]
This problem only happens in Cygwin 64, 32-bit Cygwin works ok.
Can anyone reproduce this problem?
Not here. This may be a fork issue though; please try rebase-trigger
all and run setup to see if that helps.
