I know - perhaps it shouldn't. What proportion of SUSE mod_php users
actually run Oracle? (compared to the proportion of mod_php users who
want to be able to run external programs from Apache modules).

I see that PHP's own exec() function saves and restores the SIGCHLD
handler precisely to avoid this problem. We could try to do something
similar, but it would be technically difficult, and we'd run the risk
of racing with other manipulations of the process-wide signal handler
(from ourselves, or from PHP, or another module), so I'd rather we just
left it alone.

Regards,
Malcolm
