Sounds like something is really broken in your system. That shouldn't
happen unless fork() returns a different PID for child process than what
child process sees in getpid().

Also I haven't heard of this happening with others running in FC3, so
it's somehow specific to your system. Are you maybe running some kind of
specially patched kernel?
