Yes, this is normal and expected when you damonize a process. Please
consult "Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment" book by Stevens.

If you look at $ACE_ROOT/ace/ACE.h, you'll find the following:

   * Become a daemon process using the algorithm in Richard Stevens
   * "Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment."  If
   * @a close_all_handles is non-zero then all open file handles are
   * closed.
  extern ACE_Export int daemonize (
    const ACE_TCHAR pathname[] = ACE_LIB_TEXT ("/"),
    int close_all_handles = ACE_DEFAULT_CLOSE_ALL_HANDLES,
    const ACE_TCHAR program_name[] = ACE_LIB_TEXT ("<unknown>"));
