SubjectRe: fork problems (zombie children)
Actually, in lynx (which caused me to post the original), I had a waitpid 
followed by a read of a pipe I was using for IPC. The waitpid failed to
get rid of the children. I used wait4 instead, and placed it after I
read the data and closed the pipe.

There should be no difference, and I can't reproduce it in miniature.

Another bug and fix I have no explanation for.
