How can this possibly be fixed by changing waitpid_not_cancel?  That
call is in pthread_reap_children, which isn't even reached by this
test, as far as I can tell.  Of course it should be.  And of course GDB
and strace are both a bit broken on alpha, so I'm having some trouble
tracking it down.

Anyway, I'll give it another shot later.
