I have never used fork before, and simply tried to run with a 1 hash file, and -fork -inc:all. It wrote some fork messages out (4 of them, I think). There were numerous johns running, some listed as <defunct> some said they were running. Also numerous bashes. It 'appeared' like what I would expect for a forking process. However, things were not running, and were NOT killable. The processes would not even go away with a kill from another shell, or any amount of ^C's or ^D's I had to use a win32 process manager to clean up the mess. I've just added a way to enable/disable --fork with a one-line change in os.h, and for now I disabled --fork on Cygwin builds. Thanks! Alexander
