+ <gg0> seems fifos started dying, as they should. am i wrong?
+ <gg0> ( )
+ <azeem> so you're saying the bug should be closed?
+ <azeem> best to comment on the bug then
+ <gg0> i didn't hear anyone working on it, so i'm a bit surprised
+ <azeem> could be due to lower-level fixes to glibc or so
+ <gg0> and given often(:|) i'm wrong, i was asking
+ <pinotree> in two years there have been various changes in glibc and hurd
+ <pinotree> (for example the switch to pthreads)
+ <gg0> yeah seems fixed. mknod'ing one then removing it, doesn't leave any
+ process around
+ <gg0> cool
+ <azeem> then please follow-up on the bug and/or close it
+ <gg0> sure
+ <gg0> the pleasure of closing it/them is yours
+ <gg0> great job, whatever you did :)
