- Subject: ssh, rsync hang the PC with Spyware Doctor running
Special request: Since Spyware Doctor is part of Google Pack
<http://pack.google.com>, its distribution is (becoming) large. IMHO, it
explicitly belongs on the FAQ's BLODA list
Symptoms: after several runs of ssh and/or rsync (w/ssh underneath), the PC
Though the mouse still moves, eventually (all) windows quit
repainting/responding and it's hung (cold boot req'd).
Twist: seems to work fine from a console-based bash session, but hangs when
called from anything else (e.g., make within an Eclipse session).
I shutdown PCTools' Spyware Doctor (don't need to uninstall), and I haven't
seen it since. With it running I get less than a dozen runs before it hangs.
