Oops, I'm going to guess you didn't test your patch after making a
last minute change to it.  I had to make the following change to the
f_mmp script to fix a problem where kill would complain about a
non-existing process id (because it was triyng to kill the already
exited awk process):

diff --git a/tests/f_mmp/script b/tests/f_mmp/script
index c1f13fc..d921672 100644

 	[ "x$PID" != "x" ] && kill -9 $PID
 }
