Thanks for the bug report.

Did you notice any leak in 'struct pids' also or just the pid_namespace ?
If the pids are not leaking, this may be slightly different from the problem
Catalin Marinas ran into:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/7/29/406

And the pid_namespace does not seem to reproduce for me, with out the
'ls -al /proc/...' above, or with the simpler 'ns_exec' approach to
creating pid namespace.

I am going through the code for lxc-execute, but does it remount /proc
in the container ?
