Issue #2521 has been updated by mneumann.

I tracked it down to the final exit(3) call in dialog(1). The process stays forever in reaper1 state. Kernel race??? Btw, this happens on an amd64 virtualbox instance. To reproduce just run "dialog --trace t --msgbox test 10 10". 
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.
