Anyone know the correct way to edit a skiplist in Python?

Done. wagnerrp

It's stopped working recently

I can't figure out why but silence.cpp seems to be ignoring SIGALRM and so it never stops. If I kill the tail manually (like silence.ccp is supposed to in the alarm handler) it finishes properly. If I send a SIGALRM to silence.cpp nothing happens. I'm on Debian Wheezy and it was working until a few weeks ago so it is probably a kernel or security update. Has anyone else seen this behaviour?

Fixed in silence.cpp v4.2 - I don't know what has changed but the process has SIGALRM blocked when it starts so this change simply unblocks it and all is good in the world again.
