Description William Lachance (:wlach) 2012-10-18 10:27:07 PDT
We're seeing an error with dmADB's version of killProcess:

(mozbase)wlach@eideticker:~/src/eideticker$ dm killapp com.mozilla.SUTAgentAndroid
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.29

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/wlach/src/mozbase/bin/dm", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('mozdevice==0.11', 'console_scripts', 'dm')()

    cli = DMCli(args)

    return self._runCmd(args)

    return subprocess.Popen(finalArgs, stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.STDOUT)

    errread, errwrite)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1249, in _execute_child
    raise child_exception
TypeError: execv() arg 2 must contain only strings

After bug 799507, the pid needs to be passed as a string argument. I think I actually fixed this earlier but forgot to include it as part of the patch.

Fix dmADB's version of killApp

This fixes the problem for me.

Based on :gcp's earlier report, it looks like this is causing problems for (at least) mochitest robotium over adb.

(this will take effect the next time mozbase is merged to m-i, probably early next week)
