and one more related question. Is there something about Semaphores and
terminated processes? I have no good test case yet but I think.

        [ ] ensure: [
                mutex critical: ['Sometimes never entered' printNl. 
allProcesses remove:
Processor activeProcess].
] fork

mutex criticial: [allProcesses do: [:each | each terminate ]].

I think sometimes this statement will not executed when the process is being
terminated. What I am trying to do is to have a cleanup handler for processes.
E.g. to make a process remove itself from a list of processes.

Is there a better way to achieve this goal?
