Tested with rev16521 under vmware.

That's a known missing feature: when a team is forked (which happens when you start something from the shell), the shell's areas are copied-on-write, and that requires some new VM structures (which have semaphores as well). After an exec() these structures could be freed, but that's not done yet.
