E0001: GLAPI line_start fails in gstart with "no child processes"

Product: Host Links 4.0.0, GlAPI
Platform: Any
Status: Closed, fixed in 4.0.1 and 4.1.0
Last updated: 1996-05-24 16:44:21

An application written using the GLAPI fails with the following message:
    glapi: gstart execution failed
    glapi: no child processes
    glapi: fatal error, terminating

It fails while executing the line_start function. The second time the
application is run it succeeds. Deleting the cache file in the /tmp
directory and re-running the application causes the failure again.

The error only happens if the program prior to the line_start call has
called the Unix signal functions to ignore the SIGCLD/SIGCHLD signal.

Rerun the program or change it so SIGCLD/SIGCHLD isn't ignored while
calling line_start.
