Thank you for the code snippit - checking WIFSIGNALED() showed a non-zero
result, WTERMSIG() returned 64, which isn't in /usr/include/sys/signal.h.
In any case WIFEXITED() was returning 0, so WEXITSTATUS was returning garbage.
Any idea was signal 64 would be?  It's being returned consistently; if it's
a normal termination signal I'll fix the routine to treat it as such.
