pcntl_fork() race condition?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I am using php 5.0.3 and I have a class that I fork,  the class works
fine independently and is very memory efficent,  but when I fork more
than one process php races and I get a process that takes up 99% of the
CPU,  is there a way to determine why these processes are racing?  If I
do 4 processes all 3 processes will complete and the last will spike to
99%  5/4 etc.. etc..
