Issue #5433 has been updated by Shyouhei Urabe.


@argami_toro It seems there may be some circumstances for Lion kernel to panic.
It is not always. 1.9.3 happen to hit that.

When Apple disclose that exact condition, we are possible to workaround.

If you execute a PTY.spawn with a non existing command give a kernel panic.

Example
