What append exactly ? the forked program never starts ? never ends ? the extension is hung ? wait for the completion of the forked process ? is it a never ending process ? can you see the PID of the forked process ?

MozPhone (moziax.mozdev.org) is using the nsIProcess interface's run()
method to start an external program in non blocking mode (first argument
to run() is false). It works fine on Windows and Linux, but it seems to
block on Mac OSX (have to kill the program to continue using the
extension). I could not find info about this; is this a known problem,
is there a workaround ?
