I'm writing a GUI which displays information on block device (found here).
It was developed for KDE v5, but after some changes the same source tree can also compile under KDE4!.

Today I started to develop a gui(Qt) for managing lxc containers Here

I stumbled over a problem that the program hangs after trying to start a container. After some research I discovered that QT is the culprit.

The problem is that lxc is forking the process twice and that messes up QT.

I solved this by forking the process before QApplication starts and listing to a pipe for start command. Inside the forked process the lxc container is started. Works fine so far.

It took me some hours to find this out
