Ah, thank you.

Apparently somebody needs to, please; though it appears to be already
well supplied with usleep(1)s - maybe they needed to be usleep(2)s?

And then change results shown in the changelog, and check conclusions
drawn from them (if BSD is behaving as we do, it should still show
maxrss not inherited over fork, but less obviously - the number goes
down slightly, because the history is lost, but nowhere near to zero).
