            Bug ID: 277208
           Summary: rc.subr: sometimes fails to run protect(1)
           Product: Base System
           Version: Unspecified
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: conf
          Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: tatsuki_makino@hotmail.com

Setting *_oomprotect to the enabled state will run protect on that service,
which sometimes fails.
The following output is left on the console when it appears to have failed.

protect: option requires an argument -- p
usage: protect [-i] command
       protect [-cdi] -g pgrp | -p pid

This is displayed when pid is not specified in the -p option.
In other words, it is failing to obtain the pid.
Furthermore, they are probably trying to get the pid before the pid is ready to
be retrieved.
