Julian,

We've approached IBM about this before but didn't get a response. As I
write this we're attempting to get some answers via a different channel.
I'll update you as soon as I hear something.

One other thing; while putting a new description of the problem together
for IBM I found the problem isn't that apr_proc_wait() always sets
exitcode to 0, but rather that it doesn't set it at all (the uninitialized
value was simply 0). The impact of the problem is still the same.
