Why does ABRT log unhandled Python exception even when the abrtd service is not running?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • abrt logs unhandled Python exception even when the abrtd service is not running.

  • The abrtd service is not running.

# service abrtd status
abrtd is stopped

But, when I run a python script that crashes with an unhandled exception, I still get the following logged to /var/log/messages:

Jul  9 12:08:46 dhcp210-104 abrt: detected unhandled Python exception in './script'
Jul  9 12:08:46 dhcp210-104 abrt: can't communicate with ABRT daemon, is it running? [Errno 111] Connection refused
  • Why does this happen and how can I disable it for any Python script?
