Description Vivek.A 2016-12-19 07:38:04 UTC
This causes all the file descriptors to be kept open till the process hosting the compositor is terminated / exit. So the client side we can't monitor if the compositor has terminated (i.e by checking the display->fd).

This problem is observed when running/contolling compositor as a separate thread.
