Description of problem:
Time for a upgrade? Just starting to look at swatch myself...
Adding Gavin to the CC list.
I have just updated the development branch to version 3.2.1. Unfortunately the
building system appears to be broken at the moment. I will build asap.

patch from gentoo
On the gentoo wiki there is a patch to add a threshold and proper sigchld
handling at: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Protect_SSHD_with_Swatch. This is an
updated version for 3.2.1. I haven't submitted upstream, as somewhat like the
gentoo wiki indicates, I'm not sure this doesn't break other stuff.
See what tests are t/* and maybe add one to check this change.
I have built 3.2.1-1 for FC-5 (already available in the repos) and FC-4 (to be
available after the next push).
Though upstream seems pretty dead.
