BTW, there are some docs in "zdaemon/component.xml".

This should not happen unless you have a SIGCHLD handler
installed or "fork" or "waitpid" are broken.

This would indicate a broken "waitpid" or "fork".

  Check the "pid" returned by "fork".
  It must be the pid of your Zope process.
  If it is, then "waitpid" is broken (otherwise "fork").

They are documented in "zdaemon/component.xml".
