When a program is compiled with -pg, it causes invocation of _monstartup
and it calls atexit, the problem is, _mcleanup is called twice in forkee!
That's because of _GLOBAL_REENT is copied when a process is forked.
Then we have two _mcleanup. (_monstartup is with __constructor__
attribute.) and this is not we wanted.
the same thing can be applied to any atexit call in cygwin which doesn't
cares about forkee.
