subprocess.call with onFinished and stdout callback sometimes hangs once the subprocess ends and never calls onFinished.

So far this seams to happen most often on OS X 10.5.x but was also reported on 10.6 and Windows 7
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:8.0a1) Gecko/20110815 Firefox/8.0a1

Could you provide a test case or more clear STRs for this issue?

Does this issue occur on Linux as stated in the flag or on Windows and mac as in the comment?

We definitely want a stack or a testcase, even if it is not 100% reproducible.

Given the new entirely new version of subprocess.jsm, this should not be an issue anymore.
