Pexpect getting a defuct process

P: n/a
I am trying to use a pexpect script using python v2.3.4 with pexpect
module .999 on Solaris 8.

I try to execute this script.

#!/usr/bin/env python
'''This runs "ls -l" on a remote host using SSH.
At the prompts enter hostname, user, and password.
'''
import pexpect

logfile = open('sshls.log', 'w')

child = pexpect.spawn('ssh user@server ls -la')
child.setlog(logfile)
child.setmaxread(1000)
child.expect(pexpect.EOF, timeout=180)
print child.before

This used to work before but now I get a defunct process after it runs.
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Sonny

"before" what? What has changed in your environment to make it stop
working?
