Yup, and also there are any number of other places that do rpmlog() after forking, so that might call for some more central solution. Whatever that may be.

As for MALLOC_CHECK, somebody debugging rpm memory usage with MALLOC_CHECK *will* want to turn off tracing into children, whereas somebody tracing children memory use specifically under rpm scriptlet execution seems like a highly unlikely situation. Not that MALLOC_CHECK manipulation really belongs to rpm, so I'm not opposed to dropping it, just the rationale seems dubious.
