If you open a subprocess in your view, the request will not be completely sent to the browser. Using subprocess.Popen(process, close_fds=True) will bypass this problem, but close_fds is unimplemented on Windows.
With the following view, the redirect is never received if using the dev server. The dev server will still be active and will continue to serve requests, but any requests to the hang view will not complete. When using mod_python, the redirect will work.
import subprocess from django import http def hang(request): proc = subprocess.Popen('python') return http.HttpResponseRedirect('/')
