Correction: it does.  The process the shell is waiting for terminates,
but there are two or three more processes which don't.  dejagnu
presumably waits for them all to die.

This is likely to be a long-standing bug in the Linux thread library.
exit(3) from the main thread does not reliably terminate all other
threads.  libjava may be assuming that it does.  The bug is more or
less unfixable, and needs to be worked around.

This is mainline, btw; the branch appears to be okay.
