The uucico processes apparently never die. They stay alive and, according to strace, they loop over:

getppid() = 2980
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGCHLD, NULL, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
nanosleep({1, 0}, 0xbfcb280c) = 0
getppid() = 2980
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGCHLD, NULL, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
nanosleep({1, 0}, 0xbfcb280c) = 0
getppid() = 2980
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGCHLD, NULL, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
nanosleep({1, 0}, 0xbfcb280c) = 0

The call seems to work (except the error mesage about system locked):

uucico aetius - (2013-11-02 18:37:53.95 31129) Calling system aetius (port UUCPoverSSH-aetius)

uucico aetius - (2013-11-02 18:38:03.18 31129) Call complete (1 seconds 0 bytes 0 bps)

But uuxqt is never called even if there is mail. Running uuxqt manually works fine and the mail is processed.

I can kill the processes only with kill -9. Even if I kill them all, the problem continues.

Nothing in the Debug file, even when I run uucico with -x9

This setup worked flawlessly for a long time and stopped workng after upgrading to Ubuntu "Saucy Salamander" release.

Ubuntu "saucy salamander" release
Linux kernel 3.11.0
Taylor UUCP 1.07
