  Bug indeed. Sorry about that.
  It happened when I replaced as many fork()s as possible with el_spawn*()
to use posix_spawn() when available, to make more commands work on noMMU
systems... I failed to delete the fork() line there.

  Fixed in current git, new release probably next week.

  This story illustrates the value of automated tests. I've always believed
I could escape the hassle of writing test suites for my software, by
making each part simple enough, and being careful enough. I still believe
it - but here I wasn't careful enough. And a simple test would have caught
that stupid bug.
