Hmm.. I took a look a the way the gimp does plugins, they fork(), and then
use _exit() when done (or on error). In my code, I fork off a process
(for dns lookup), it closes all it's fd's except for the pipes, and uses
_exit. No error messages so I'm happy :)
Just in case someone else was interested..
