New internal function.
2008-02-24 Tor Lillqvist <firstname.lastname@example.org> * glib/gutils.c (_glib_get_installation_directory): New internal function. * glib/gspawn-win32.c: When spawning the helper process, use an explicit full path. (#518292) * glib/gspawn-win32.c * glib/gspawn-win32-helper.c: Fix race condition when using the helper process: When the helper process writes the handle of the actual started user process to the parent process, it must be duplicated in the parent process with DuplicateHandle() so that it is a valid handle in that process. However, if the helper process has happened to exit before the DuplicateHandle() call, the duplication will fail. Thus we must synchronise the helper process's exit. Use another pipe for this. Take care not to inherit the writing end of this pipe to the helper process. Also, in the helper process, take care not to inherit either of the pipes used for communication with the parent process to the started user process. svn path=/trunk/; revision=6575
