Could you have a look at the branches/trac300 if it is solved there? Every process there is added to a list and if the startup fails, all processes are killed. The old code didn't catch all exceptions (like KeyboardInterrupt?) and had long windows that didn't catch anything.

In theory, there's a short window where the process can survive ‒ if you send the signal between the fork call and the place where the process is added to the list (which is the next line of code). It should be short and I do not see an easy way to solve it, do you think this is OK?
