I encountered this error with Limnoria and I was told to report it here.

Can you provide more information about the error (e.g. the relevant piece of code where the error generates, if you can reproduce it every time or if it's sporadic, a minimal piece of code that can reproduce the same issue, etc.)?
I would also suggest to report this to the supybot issue tracker if the affected code is not specific to Limnoria.

The relevant piece of code:

commands.process is defined here:

callbacks.CommandProcess is defined at (SupyThread is a small subclass of threading.Thread, which increments a count on initialization)

The provided links to the relevant code are unfortunately pointing at the master branch's copy of those files and not a specific version of the code making it that much harder to now discern where the issue arises.  (A number of things have changed in the master branch since this issue was first reported.)

Can Mikaela or Valentin or others provide a minimal piece of code that can still reproduce the issue?

Without more information, it appears it will be very difficult to try to reproduce or effectively investigate this issue further.  If the issue is no longer reproducible, such an update would also very much be appreciated.

Closing this stale issue as out of date with no response from OP since request months ago for enough info to be able to proceed.

i have a similiar issue:

i have a really simple scenario

def MoveDataToOtherSide(cls, model)
data = {
            "FirstName": model.FirstName,
            "LastName": model.LastName,
            "Email": model.Email,
            "Pass": model.Password,
            "Images": cls.LoadUserImages(model.ID)

        p = Process(target=UserService.MoveProfileToOtherSide, kwargs={"data": data})

    def MoveProfileToOtherSide(data): requests.get("", params={"token": "secBlub", "data": encode(data, unpicklable=False)})

I think it has something todo with stdout but i have no clue how i could debug this further, unfortunetely. 

The Application around this functionality (UserService) is cherrypy.
