ok- well the deeper problem is that we are aborting due to memory errors - and
this is inside a free() which has set up a pthread lock - which in turn has
then locked out the putenv which set an env var as to why e crashed. so the
crash handler is locked out. now the questions arises - how do i pass this info
along safely to the re-executed process. i'll have to figure out another way.
