    Yeah (redhat 7.2), on linux a pthread is an implementation of a LinuxThread isn't it.

    The problem is intermittent, but I know how to reproduce now.

    I'll see if I can reproduce with the code you posted. I'll post the results.

    vVv, what's the effect of calling _exit before or directly after pthread_exit? I mean, pthread_exit just cleans up the thread resources, and according to my man page, _exit sends SIGCHLD signal to processes inherited by the init process etc.

    ok, just tested last posted script. same problem.

    I changed the code to:
    char *script1 = "#!/bin/sh\n"
                                     "printf \"hello world\"";
    after the code 'times out' and EXITS i get the following still in my process list (ps -auxf):
    root      9822  0.0  0.3  2232 1012 pts/5    S    12:37   0:00 /bin/sh
    The script is acually doing a snmpdf (disk space analysis using SNMP) on a remote windows box with a ropey snmp daemon.

    Now, is this a Linux issue? Is snmpdf doing something wierd?

    One hack is to kill the PID of from the C daemon using pid files, but I want ot get to the root of the problem.

    Well, if it's not my code (i.e. the system) then I need to hack:

    1) Use pid file to explicitly kill the pid of - i don't want to have to manage these really.

    2) Run a cron job that stop the daemon kills all processes owned by it and starts it again - i know!

    3) Use BSD.

    I can't think of anything else!
