Hmm... can't we just allow PTRACE_DETACH after PTRACE_EVENT_EXIT is
reported? It doesn't involve changes to any visible behavior (other
than allowing DETACH of course) and we don't lose anything. Haven't
really thought about the implementation but I don't think this would
be too difficult.

Thanks.
