System: NetBSD 7.99.25 NetBSD 7.99.25 (POKEY 2015-12-23 05:05:48) #9: Wed Dec 23 15:10:44 PHT 2015 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
	filemon(4) does not detect that a monitored process's pid
	can be re-used by a new, unrelated process.  As a result,
	filemon will monitor the events of the (new) process and
	all of its descendants without making any authentication
	Start filemon(4) for a given target.  Let that process
	exit (or terminate it via a signal).  Create significant
	process churn (creation/exit) until the original process's
	pid gets reused.
	Unknown.  filemon(4) needs to be totally reworked.
