[dev] dmenu and dwm: is exec really needed

I use dwm. Sometimes I use Mod-p to start a GUI program like firefox.
I looked at the output of ps xf and noticed that my shell is sticking
21347 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/fish
21388 ? Rl 0:04 \_ iceweasel

I can type `exec firefox` instead of `firefox` to avoid this, but should
I have to? Am I doing something wrong or is dwm supposed to work this way?

Thank you.
