Just started looking at the code today, (just ordered my CrystalFontz display

I'm a big fan of logging stuff to syslog, so I started by adding "Starting."
and "Exiting."
log entries and noticed that when LCDd starts it has a PID of say 10000, I
dont see any
processes running with that id, they are always the starting process + 1.

What's up with this? Is it something with how it forks itself?
