While researching the AIX issue affecting mod_cgid, in which kill() would not 
report that a process was gone until up to 1 second after it exited*, I 
constructed a test program to expose the delay without using Apache+mod_cgid. 
Running the test program on HP-UX 11i (PA-RISC) showed no delay.  I tried it on 
a number of other OSs too and found no such delay.

If your mileage varies, I'd certainly like to hear about it.

*this behavior is limited to a design like mod_cgid's, where sigchld is not 
usually generated for the exiting script
