[MPlayer-users] Slave Command "run" doesn't reap forks

I'm using the run command to periodically print the time_pos and length.

pausing_keep run "echo TIMEPOS: ${time_pos}/${length} > /dev/stdout"

but every call creates a zombie because the fork created for the shell is  
not waited for.
i patched command.c to wait for the fork and it works. should i create a  
patch or is for some reason this behavior intended?

I am using MPlayer SVN-r37386-snapshot-4.9.2.
