The above is 'working' for me, just substitute the filenames with two
existing filenames on your system. It really doesn't matter which files,
as soon as I put it in crontab I get the error. In fact it doesn't matter
what the command executes is, I got the same thing with 'cmp', 'mv' and

It the latest Red Hat 5.1/5.2 one, 2.0.7-something. I don't *think* it's
glibc-related though, the strace output is pretty clear and it shows the
bare system calls.
Bottom line is, a process dies, its parent gets a SIGCHLD, does a wait4()
and the result is ECHILD. The system calls trace shows nothing unusual.
Unless I'm a complete idiot, I don't see how anything non-kernel could
-- It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.
