I use hotwayd for linux. I'm running Debian 3.0r2
binary 5 with mostly upto date packages. When I run
hotwayd for awhile, I leave it running along with
thunderbird on another desktop and forget about it.
After awhile, my system lags. I open up KDE's process
manager or use TOP to find out that there are MANY PIDs
of hotwayd open and they're responsible for the system
lag. I have to end up closing thunderbird, but when I
do that, hotwayd doesn't automatically terminate. I
keep having to pkill hotwayd through root. It should be
able to run 24/7 without all these extra PIDs and
system lag. Nicing seems to have no effect. The process
also belongs to 'nobody'.

    This should be fixed in the CVS version which I should have
    tarred together and released as an offical version a long
    time ago..

    Let me know if you're not using 0.8.2 and I'll look into it
    further.

    Just take the 0.8.3 package I put up last night - it's the
    same as the CVS.

    May be to do with tb trying to fetch every x mins, and
    failing in a way that makes hotwayd act funny? FWIW I run TB
    on debian-sarge with hotwayd/hotsmtpd with no problems at
    present (version 0.8.4).

    1. Upgrade to Debian 3.1 Sarge if you haven't already.
    2. Please install hotway 0.8.4 from testing/unstable or compile a backport (contact me for help with this).
    2. Please check if you still have this problem and close the bug if so (seems that it shold dbe closed in 0.8.4).
