The real problem here is that it is calling exit() directly.  That is almost always
incorrect.  There are cleanup programs that need to be run.  If the calls to exit
are replaced with calls to destroy_and_exit_process, this problem should
go away.  Of course, that means that the destroy_and_exit_process will need
to become non-static.
