I think we should take the fork() stuff out of apr_proc_detach()
instead. Detach is doing what it's supposed to, creating a new session
(and therefore detaching from the controlling terminal). The only way
it can reliably do that is if it is not a pgrp leader. IMO the way
to handle this is to let apr_proc_deatch() assume it is already a
non pgrp leader and put the fork() calls that ensure this outside.
Another option is to have apr_proc_deatch() simply check if it is
the pgrp leader, and if so to only then call the fork.
