Lately, I've been having trouble with bash. I get the following error
when I exit telnet (the telnet client was logged into some other host,
typically a UNIX host, but sometimes another NT box running Sergey's INETD
Connection closed by foreign host.
(c:\usr\bin\sh.exe 1166) wait_subproc: wait failed. nchildren 1, wait -1,
(c:\usr\bin\sh.exe 1166) wait_subproc: event 0x20, error 6
and then the shell hangs. Ctrl-C (Z, \, ...) do nothing.
What does that error mean?
