#1607 new defect

Do not ignore SIGCHLD

While testing out the credential handling by sge_qmaster, I found this:

04/06/2017 11:28:37|worker|vulcan7|E|could not store credentials for job 15 - command "/usr/share/gridengine/utilbin/lx-amd64/put_cred" failed with return code 10

This because sge_qmaster is ignoring SIGCHLD and setting SA_NOCLDWAIT, and thus waitpid() is returning with errno 10 - ECHILD because the child has already exited and we said we didn't care.

This appears to date back quite a ways:

but this completely breaks sge_peopen()/sge_peclose functionality. Perhaps some mailing code will need to add the necessary waitpid() call.
