patch to reset SIGCHLD handler in milters
I'm filing this bug here since it appears that y'all are doing more to maintain Sendmail::PMilter than its actual maintainers.
In https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=85826 , I report that Sendmail::PMilter prevents milters from forking and reaping their own child processes, because it sets a SIGCHLD handler in the parent process and then doesn't remove it in the children.
The fix (attached) is obvious and trivial.
Could you put this in the Fedora RPM?
