Abort trap at fork for coverage builds fixed in OS X 10.7

Just a quick update on the abort trap after fork in coverage builds on OS X situation here. As previously reported, I was testing on OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard.

I had a friend try it on 10.7 (Lion) tonight, and ... no crash! I assume this means Apple fixed it, but it could also mean something changed to mask it. Either way, it means the vproc_transaction_begin hack should no longer be necessary.
