GitX hangs when trying to open repository with fifo
Reported by Dag Høidahl | May 11th, 2009 @ 10:29 AM
When a repository contains a fifo file (created using mkfifo), GitX is not able to open the repository. The application will hang unless the fifo is given some data (e.g. echo something > thefifo). If so, the application shows an error dialogue saying 'The document "" could not be opened.'

I think this is some NSDocument weirdness, which I don't know how to fix. Opening the repository from the cli works, right? There's no easy fix here, it's probably Cocoa's fault. We might drop the NSDocument stuff and go with something of our own.. we don't get too much benefit from it anyway, and it seems to cause trouble if you don't adhere to Apple's standard of what a document should look like.
I'm going to close this ticket, as there isn't really anything I can do about it now.
