Hello,
i am getting the error (CHILD      10 No child processes) sometimes when i issue a system call (accept) following is the code and the debug logs:

Code:
sock = accept((*network)->networkSpecific.TCP.listenSocket, &from, &len);
COUT << "*************AFTER ACCEPT(sock: " << sock << "/errno: "
<< errno << ")*************\n\n\n";

Logs:
*************AFTER ACCEPT(sock: 5/errno: 10)*************

Any idea of hint on what might cause this error? again this error take place in some rare cases and most of the time the above code works as expected.
thx
