That's what I was going to suggest -- even if you can get it not to
crash, it may well be in a bad state -- memory leaks, and who know
what else.

We did something similar with some C code that called the system
exit() function when it encountered errors -- it may not have been too
hard to replace those calls, but making sure the memory was all
cleaned up was going to be a trick -- so we just used the multiprocess
module to call it in another process.

HTH,
