Thanks for the testing! We saw a report of this from Peru yesterday and
fixed it¹, then released Wikipedia-10.xo² with the fix. I think Scott
plans on putting Wikipedia-10.xo and other fixes into a 703-6 shortly.

This was our first implementation (using an "atexit" handler) but that
handler won't run if the reason the activity dies is due to out of
memory, X crashing, or so on. The thread-based solution should be more
robust, now that it works; we can guarantee the child thread will die
when the parent does.
