Thanks, I applied the patch.

Though I wonder, is Linux the only operating system that typically has
setsid(1)? It doesn't look like it is available on BSDs. It's such a
small tool and it can be implemented portably so I guess it's fine as
a part of sbase, but I wonder if there is some other tool with similar
functionality on other systems.
