Description Ken Snider 2004-01-30 17:50:27 EST
Description of problem:

When making use of a threaded application, using pkill on it will
occasionally result in multiple signals being seen by the signal handler.

pkill -P 1 eliminates the issue.

Also, using procps 3.0.15 gives the correct behaviour.

Is procps, as shipped with RHEL, *not* NPTL-aware??
