It's almost exactly the same race condition as the one described in issue 2320. The pipes are created and stay without the CLOEXEC flag for a while (until the process has been forked and fcntl has been called). During that time another thread can launch a subprocess, the subprocess will inherit the pipe, and there might be a hang similar to the one described here (or in issue 2320).
