 Hi all,
 I've been looking at this a bit more, in particular I ran truss on bmake 
 and working. Any -j option causes the bmake test to fail. Running bmake 
 -j work just fine. Here are truss outputs from the failing test, first with 
 -j options that don't work and the last that did work.
 In the failed -j1 output we can clearly see poll (pollsys) indicating EOF on 
 8 by returning "rev=POLLIN" which is promptly ignored. fd 8 is clearly the fd 
 where the results from the child appear.
 I haven't finished digging (and I won't get a chance to do more today), but 
 2180 of job.c seems to say that the table of descriptors being polled should 
 have two entries before and children we are reading data from. The truss logs 
 clearly show only one. I have no idea where the other one has gone.
