+ <braunr> tschwinge: have you encountered wait() errors ?
+ <tschwinge> What kind of wait errors?
+ <braunr> when running htop or watch vmstat, other apparently unrelated
+ processes calling wait() sometimes fail with an error
+ <braunr> i saw it mostly during builds, as they spawn lots of children
+ <braunr> (and used the aforementioned commands to monitor the builds)
+ <tschwinge> Sounds nasty... No, don't remember seeing that. But I don't
+ typiclly invoke such commands during builds.
+ <tschwinge> So this wait thing suggests there's something going wrong in
+ the proc server?
+ <braunr> tschwinge: yes
