CGIWaitPid (UNIX Only)

For UNIX platforms, when CGIWaitPid is set to on, the action for the SIGCHLD signal is the system default action for the signal. If a NSAPI plug-in fork/execs a child process, it should call waitpid with its child process pid when CGIWaitPid is enabled to avoid leaving “defunct” processes when its child process terminates. When CGIWaitPid is enabled, the SHTML engine waits explicitly on its exec cmd child processes. Note that this directive has no effect on CGI.
