Does anyone know how a kylix application can restart itself?    

In the windows world, I use Shellexecute to launch a second instance, and then terminate the application.

In Kylix, I am using the libc.system( ) procedure to execute shell commands,  but it is launching the new application instance as a child process of the original application.  I have also tried putting a "&" at the end of the shell commnad parameters, but this does not seem to work.

If it doesn't help, try to search for the 'deamon' system call.
