Noux port

Hello Josef,

While working on the port today I obtained an error that also occurs when I
start the default noux_bash run script. For example, when you run the ls
command inside the bash shell I obtain the following error:

[init -> noux] Segmentation fault (signum=11), see Linux kernel log for

The error seems to occur in the constructor of the new child.

Kind regards,
