Re: pysieved ZOMBIE problem

This is a known issue in pysieved-1.0.

The root cause is python's socket module, which fixed in python-2.6.
Reference (Patch included):

- SocketServer timeout, zombies

Re: pysieved ZOMBIE problem

Another solution is use xinetd to start pysieved instead of starting pysieved as a standlone service.
