protocol pipe fd herited by loginfo filter programs

I am using "(CVS) 1.10.7 (client/server)" as a server and
"(CVS) 1.10.8 (client/server)" as a client, and a loginfo whose filter
sends mails.
This configuration results in 'cvs commit' which took about 10 seconds.
After investigating, I found that the mail sender, Mail called exim, which
directly delivers mails *in background*.  So exim was not in fault, but
since it herited protocol fd and since pserver waits for all protocol pipe
to be close, it took this time.

Currently, I have fixed this behavior by manually closing fd before calling
Mail, but I think pserver should do this.
Is my understanding correct ?  Has this already been fixed ?
