    Snippet from the log of a box.

    Feb 16 20:32:56 server4 kernel: application bug: whostmgrd(25258) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
    Feb 16 20:32:56 server4 kernel: (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.

    What is this about?

    Thanks,
    Hedgy

    This *shouldn't* affect anything, states cpanel support. Here's some info from the changelog:

    +-------------------------------------------------------------+
    Thu Jan 29 22:50:44 EST 2004
    8.7.0-EDGE_47
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    fix another instance where
    cppop could generate an

    application bug: cppop(19163) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
    (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.

    this is really annoying since we are going to be forced to call
    wait in some circumstances even when SIGCHLD is set to IGNORE
    because of broken kernels. The tradeoff is the error message which
    doesn't affect anything but makes people go crazy when they see it.
    However its better that we don't create zombie processes, so for
    compatibility between diffrent linux versions it might just be
    best to live with this warning message as it doesn't do anything
    but make people ask questions.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------


    +-------------------------------------------------------------+

    So it's not going to get fixed.
