subprocess freeze with rsync on windows


I try to call rsync (with ssh) with subprocess but _some times_ it
freeze without traceback, without any reason.

My code look like that :
def sh(self,cmd):
log.debug("S cmd: " + " ".join(cmd) )
p = Popen(cmd, stdout = PIPE, stderr = PIPE)
stdout, stderr = p.communicate()
if stdout:
log.debug("S ret: %s" % stdout)
if stderr:
log.error("S err: %s" % stderr)
return p.returncode

When it freeze i need to kill the ms-dos console by hand.
I've no problem on linux with the same script.


the complet script (doing rsync and cp -al on the remote side) is
available freely here : http://flibuste.net/libre/snapy (but
documentation is in french)

I'm trying to use the py-gnuplot module on windows, and have been unable to get it to work reliably under Win2K and WinXP.

It works fine when executed...
