That was the bug. However, the earlier comments in this bug indicate
it might not be vfork related.
The first step is to capture this with gdb and get a backtrace, just
like you would with any other bug. There is nothing difficult about
this, just time consuming.
Once we have a backtrace, either via a core dump, or attached gdb,
then we can talk about the likely cause.
