[DragonFlyBSD - Bug #2521] new dialog locks up on dports on both platforms

From: Venkatesh Srinivas via Redmine <bugtracker-admin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Issue #2521 has been updated by vsrinivas.

When dialog(1) exits, it has an unmatched PHOLD() from scmouse.c, in syscons. When a process enters mouse mode via syscons (registers for a signal on mouse events), it gains a hold to stabilize the proc for signals. On exit, this hold is not removed.

http://acm.jhu.edu/~me/scmouse.diff is a first patch, not-yet-compile-tested and soon-to-be-fixed-somewhat, that registers an at-process-exit handler to disconnect the process from the syscons its MOUSE_MODEing for.
Bug #2521: new dialog locks up on dports on both platforms

Author: marino
Status: New
Priority: Urgent
Assignee: pavalos
Target version: 

It was reported that using "make config" on a dport with options stopped working on i386 after the import of the new libdialog.  It will freeze after "[OK]" is pressed.

I didn't see it on x86-64 platform, but it was reported on IRC that it occurred on their x86-64 machine.

I marked it urgent because it's a showstopper if dports is destined to be default package manager in release 3.4.
Right now the only option is to skip dialog with "USE_BATCH=yes" or some other method.
