login forks the watchdog process and what it does is wake up and check if
the main login process has an owner.  If you've logged in, it should have
one.  What you should do is attach gdb to the watchdog process, and set a
breakpoint in check_login.  Then watch it talk to the proc server and see
what it gets back and what it does.  The watchdog process ought to see that
the main process has an owner now and just exit.
