[Lldb-commits] [PATCH] Make CommandObjectProcess check process state before calling WaitForProcessToStop

Hi Jim, how does this look?

I noticed the need to add a flag to WaitForProcessToStop that makes it not
wait for an event in certain scenarios (when called from
CommandObjectProcessLaunch). The same function when used from other places
needs to wait for an event based on my testing..

This is the last thing that needs to be committed before I can push the
initial version of the terminal ui we've been hacking on here :)
