Description Arne Henrik Juul 1997-02-01 00:10:02 UTC
When /bin/kill is given an empty argument, this is converted to PID 0, with unpleasant effects on kill's process group. Fix: A simple typo of !*argv where !**argv was clearly meant. There was another check of the same type, but that one was clearly unneccessary and I've just removed it. How-To-Repeat: /bin/kill -CONT '' Note that you should have got an error.
