[..] > What's the actual problem? Are important programs failing to get cycles? I don't know the reason for the issue, but I too have had many problems with screen. (4.8 or 4.9 box?) It works, it just uses up all the CPU available. (Starting at 0.x percent going up to 100 percent) The fix was to build the screen port, and the problem(s) went away. I don't remember specifically on which releases this issue occurs, I do know that it's been more than just a single one. I've had the same issue on several different systems as well. Just build screen from ports and the issue will go away. I haven't (directly) used python before, but it's always been built from ports as a dependency of another port. That might have something to do with it. -Wolfe _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
