process: drop pipe after child exits in wait_with_output #4315

merged 2 commits into from

Copy link

Drop the stdout/stderr pipes after the child has exited in wait_with_output. This will supposedly avoid a crash in some rare circumstances as discussed in #4309.

I'm still not entirely sure why delaying the IO handle drop would help, but we can easily try it out.

I'm with you, I'd rather understand what's going on before jumping to a fix like this.

@iitalics You should be able to try out the version of Tokio available in this PR by adding the following to your Cargo.toml.

tokio = { git = "", branch = "wait_with_output_oom" }

If you're able to compare how it performs with and without this change without any other changes, that would be cool.

I've tested this for about an hour with no crash observed.

Okay, if adding/removing this patch makes the crash go away and come back, then it seems reasonable to merge this. Not that it makes any sense.
