Subject FreeBSD 3.0 release notes
Date Sat, 17 Oct 1998 23:43:20 GMT

In the "changes" section of the FreeBSD 3.0 release notes:

o sleep(3) and usleep(3) are now implemented in terms of signanosleep(2)
  and now have correct SIGALRM interaction semantics and sleep(3) correctly
  returns the time remaining.  Some programs (notably apache httpd) bogusly
  depend on a sleep() "absorbing" a SIGALRM from a timer that expires during
  the life of the sleep.

cause for concern?
