Maybe I'm wrong about this.  My line of thoughts is: a failed fork() call is a bug in the program.  Now, the master process will continue operating as it was, no warnings, no errors.  The child process will crash with a RuntimeError exception.  Will it be properly reported/logged?

I guess the forked child will share the stderr, so the exception won't pass completely unnoticed, right?
