Given all this, does it make sense to adopt a patch similar to the one I posted earlier, and ignore the bug in system() on any particular OS? system() and popen() are easy to replace in Python if anybody is really bothered by the problem.
I'd think so, yes. The patch needs to be elaborated, and I'd delay integration to wait for a Redhat response. We should also restrict this for 2.4 at the moment, to find out how other pthread implementations react to pthread_atfork.
