Refresh (R) spawns a new process
Reported by Benjamin Quorning | November 28th, 2008 @ 09:49 AM
Refreshing the GitX view seems to spawn a new process each time:
$ ps ax | grep '(git)' | wc -l 0 $ gitx $ ps ax | grep '(git)' | wc -l 2 (hitting R a few times in GitX) $ ps ax | grep '(git)' | wc -l 11

I'm aware of this. Unfortunately, I don't have an easy fix.
The problem is that the thread which execs git is killed before the process is finished. Waiting on the process to finish before killing the thread causes weird drawing glitches, so that's not a solution either :(
