AFAICT, this is an ash problem. ash was clearing it's trap list after a
program executed due to its thinking that it was in a forked process
rather than a vforked process where such an activity would clear the
parent. So, none of the cleanup was done.
I checked in a couple of changes to rectify this.
Corinna, could you release an experimental version of ash and see if it
solves everyone's problems?
