Subject:   programs that run after mgetty don't die on hangup

hello,

i observed the following problem in experimenting with mgetty:
although mgetty detects modem hangups and dies, programs it spawns do
not.  they linger indefinitely after a carrier drop.  this includes
login, pppd, and the shell.

this is not the case with regular getty---programs spawned by it get a
SIGHUP and die instantly.

i'd be grateful for any suggestions on this one---i really want to get
auto-ppp working. :-)
