No difference (on Win98 and Me. I will try NT on Monday).

I can now duplicate exactly what's happening in the application I am porting.
A key element is that it disconnects itself from the controlling terminal
by closing fd 0, 1 & 2 and forking. Weird things happen afterwards:
1) For every re-exec (triggered by -HUP), ps -W and the Windows task manager
   show an extra copy of the program.
   [without the disconnect from the controlling terminal, only one process
2) If a tcp call was received and a child was forked, then after the next
   netstat -a shows an extra LISTEN on port 999. It never goes away. This
   even if the -HUP is given long after (I tried up to 5 minutes) the child
   terminates. Eventually incoming calls are not answered.
   [without the disconnect from the controlling terminal, an extra LISTEN
    only if the -HUP was given while the child is running, and it
disappears when 
    the child exits]
I have no idea where to start debugging that. I am attaching the demo program.
It is used as shown in the previous message, and also using ps -W. 

Ntsec good news: I think I have identified and solved the problem of
having an incorrect UID, and also of setting the DACL in the token security
descriptor. I will test on Monday and let you know.
