config: quodlibet/control - empty file, QL does not start #2754
So just now during playback quodlibet froze.
I checked my .config and there was a control file (or named pipe perhaps), and removing it made quodlibet start again successfully.
I have no idea how this happened but yes
edit: well it gets recreated again, I guess I never noticed it. But removing it the first time fixed it for me, I have no idea why.
I did not try restarting my computer, just killing the quodlibet process and restarting quodlibet.
It's used to communicate with the running instance. If that one deadlocks the calling one will wait 10 seconds and then replace it.
Maybe something has changed with Python 3 there.
