Uh, as I recall, that was one of the things that my patch did as a
side-issue. It's only a few lines of code anyway.

Oh, BTW, I've been hacking around with the KMod code some more and may
have found a way to simplify the multiple module code greatly, by trapping
the SIGCHLD's when the forked processes exit. It still isn't totally
stable (I'm really beginning to think that there is some MM screwups going
on here), but I'll be posting it later today.
