'trapmon' should be installed 'suid' root (i.e. remember to do a 'make
root' in the installation).

It does not require any config file. The man page (even though old)
describes this program.

If a program keeps getting restarted, just run it from the command line
and see what error you get. Most/all of the C monitors accept '-d' for
debug mode.
