This or some variant also shows up with scons
( leading to some
nasty intermittent build failures.  Neal may remember how we addressed
this for a Process class in a past life.  Basically it's OK to collect
all the child exit codes if you record the results and return them when
requested. This would mean that waitpid and the like would have to check
a cached list of PIDs and exit statuses before actually waiting.  Don't
know if that's possible/any help in this case or not...
