Description jlarmour 1999-05-24 20:33:47 UTC
at sets the signal handler of SIGCHLD to SIG_IGN, resulting
in the child inheriting this. This causes any grandchildren
to quit immediately rather than becoming zombies that
can be "wait"ed for by the child. A similar problem to this
(problem #732) was fixed for cron.

I will send a patch along via e-mail, since I don't appear
to have access to upload RPMs any more (more work for
you!).
