broken KProcess in HEAD

KProcess appears to have been broken in HEAD fairly recently.i've been working 
on the sms plugin in kopete where it is neccessary to use KProcess to execute 
an "smssend" command. when built under HEAD, the command often finishes 
without KProcess signalling processExited(...); a quick ps shows that the 
command is zombified. it seems that the longer the process takes to execute 
the more chance of KProcess failing.

when built under 3.1.2 this behavior does not happen.

is this a known bug? if so is there an eta on the fix?
