Indeed, i did (burning mailserver over here -- some old mails just
start to come in ...).
I don't understand "the 'exec wmiirc' make the current wmiir read /event
context a zombie". Shell 'exec' will _replace_ the current shell with
the new process, so no zombies (and no new PID).

Hmm, i guess it's a matter of taste. Saves one from rewriting the PID
file (and i do think a PID file is usefull. I install a SIGHUP handler
in my wmiirc that reexecutes wmiirc ... just to make shure i can get
it back once i sent the process to configuration nirvana while

 Cheers and thanks
