Hi Gaudenz,

Thanks for sending this bug report.

Well, I'm surprised to read this, because I packaged websockify 0.6.0
after someone on IRC told me that there was an issue with websockify
0.5, and that novnc needed >= 0.6.0 in order to work properly.

I've been told that the issue without 0.6.0 is that you get some old
zombie process after each VNC connections.

I have to admit that I don't really use novnc myself, I am a SPICE user
(I think it's far better and performing that VNC).

I tried to use the patch that you sent as a reference [1].
Unfortunately, it doesn't apply against the current Icehouse release.

Solly, you're the author of the patch. Do you think a backport to
Icehouse could be made? This would avoid a lot of headakes for me and I
would really like avoiding the downgrade of websockify if possible.
