The problem is not the forking. It's the use of exit instead of _exit.

When forking, you MUST either call one of the exec functions, or _exit. You 
must not call exit, as that runs global destructors and all sorts of de-
initialisation. It's that de-initialisation that is screwing up the process 

However, I am not entirely sure for one other reason: QProcess uses a second 
thread to handle process termination from a Unix signal handler (the process 
manager thread). If you fork, only one thread is forked. You don't get the 
other threads, so if the parent process caused that thread to start, the child 
process will not be able to use QProcess either.
