| It doesn't. I dimly remember a zombie problem on Digital UNIX 3.2.
There clearly is, as all those zombies are using up way too much VM.
Whether that's th eonly one or not I don't know.
| In any case, the bug Mark fixed depends on waitpid() being called,
?? It was when spawnxfer() returned -1, which would be when vfork()
Is there something I'm missing there? (Aside from the fact that I
actually looked at that code the other day and failed to spot it...)
The next time I catch it in this state (assuming it happens again)
I will see if I can figure out what is happening - SIGCHLD getting
itself permanently blocked is is certainly a possibility, though
actually discovering that has happened might not be real easy.
