    Rework the timeout of the CGI script. · 7b7a9464
    Alexandre Duret-Lutz authored
    The previous implementation was fine to catch timeout of third-party
    tools (like dot), but to good to catch timeout in Spot itself, because
    Python will not deliver a SIGALRM while a native function (e.g. Spot's
    translation) is running.  So we fork() the Python process, with a
    parent that does nothing but wait for the termination of the child or
    for an alarm.  On SIGALRM, the parent kills all children.
    * wrap/python/ajax/spot.in: Adjust to fork.
    * wrap/python/tests/alarm.py: New test file to test this
    scenario in a more controled environment.
    * wrap/python/tests/Makefile.am: Add it.
