Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-02-12 10:39:11 UTC
It's not in the parallel backend, but in the scheduler (scheduler/devices.c). 
The reason given in CHANGES.txt for this is:

        - The scheduler's LoadDevices() function was getting
          interrupted by the SIGCHLD signal handler; now ignore
          child signals while loading devices.

I don't want to re-introduce whatever bug that was.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2003-02-12 18:51:52 UTC
