Won't that if statement always evaluate to false?
If exitstatus is 0 the first part of the and will be false and so the
entire and expression is false.
If exitstatus is not 0 then the second part of the and will be false and
again the and result will be false.
Did you mean to use exitstatus for both tests?
Or am I missing something subtle here?
