if i change the window size when a sleep command is running, the sleep command gets some sort of interrupt and finishes.
no error or exception is raised.
i'm using iTerm2 (on mac OSX 10.7.4) to connect to a "Linux Server001 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux" where this happens.
p.s. - this doesn't happen on my local shell (i.e. iTerm2 on mac OSX 10.7.4). only on the remote machine which runs the above mentioned version of Linux
which version of IPython ? I'm not able to reproduce this with my a debian wheezy as server.
This doesn't happen with iTerm2 and IPython via ssh on Ubuntu 12.04.
@phistakis Is this unique to IPython, or does it happen in a regular Python session?
I, as well, am not able to reproduce it.
this is unique to IPython and i only reproduced it on the above environment (the regular python session worked fine there).
it did not happen on my local mac, and not on other linux based systems i have access to..
as for versions:
Python 2.7.2 (default, Sep 19 2011, 13:38:17)
IPython 0.12 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
p.s - i only got an email for the last comment. that's why no reply till now...
Changing the terminal size does send a SIGWINCH which is capable of interrupting the sleep system call. I'm not sure what would cause it to do so, but no-one has managed to replicate this (I've just tried as well, including sshing to a couple of other machines), so I'm going to close this for now.
