Is this only on a certain app/library that might use in a
different thread?  Can you reproduce it on a dead simple "Hello World"
app that you're certain is single-threaded?  It could be related to this
bug someone off list hit the other day:

  ( is dead right now :<)

Can you ktrace(? (or any other) syscall tracer) the worker immediately
after spawning and see what it's doing up until the master kills it?

The other possible culprit is that the accept_nonblock is blocking,
