Subject new bug introduced
Date Mon, 22 Apr 1996 09:40:13 GMT

We've got some scripts (perl) that fork a child to do background
work while the parent returns a response to the client to say "come
back later".

1.1b0 worked fine, but with 1.1b1 under HPUX the connection remains
open until the child exits.

Here's a simplified version of the script which would have worked
under 1.1b0 and 1.0.3


print "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n";
print "done";
close STDOUT; 
if (fork()) {exit(0);}
sleep 10;


So what happened ?
