  When a program is designed for do some things, it's logic suppose that
it gonna do this things and no others. If i give you the instructions
for cook "paella valenciana" and you get a cake... some was wrong. :)

  What you say can be true if the execution of the binary was made 3 or
4 times. But after more than 50 times with exactly the same output i am
sure that the reason of "the lost" of this two processes are into the
program and not out, in another place of the system.

  My friend k0ro suggest that the explanation of this processes behavior
in the GNU/Hurd system can be caused by the procceses server and not by
the gnumach kernel. Opinions, please?.

  Sincerely, thanks you, very much.
