    The openssl library seems to have a strange love for getpid() too. At
    least, my old-ish version "openssl-0.9.6b-35.7" does.
    My strace logs show over 50 consecutive getpid() calls during the
    processing of the SSL_accept() routine. (I'm adding SSL support to vsftpd;
    SSL_accept() is called every client connect and also to accept passive
    data connections).
