Yes, I can believe it.  We've got like 4 versions of our own process
control code as a result of all the various problems that we've
run into.  We're in the process of trying to standardize that down
to one way of doing things.

Anyway, another thing to try instead then, if you want to avoid popen2,
is to look at AsyncExecuteCommandLine() in the wingapi.py file and
call spawn.CAsyncExecute yourself instead directly with the correct

Or copy ExecuteCommandLine() which calls the same thing but includes
the code needed to wait for the result until a timeout.  You can
modify the invocation to spawn.CAsyncExecute to send in your desired

Hope that helps.
