           Summary: execv does not initialize argv properly
           Product: D
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: andrei metalanguage.com


Consider:

import std.process, std.stdio;

void main(string[] args)
{
    writeln(args);
    assert(args.length);
    execv(args[0], args[1 .. $]);
}

This program should execute itself forever. In fact, when started with no
options, it asserts at the second execution: args is not properly initialized
by the execv function.

Sorry - that's the actual behavior of execv. Not a bug.
