    SubjectRe: Communicator crash; kill -9 won't remove (pre-10!)
    From the user, apparently this happens in the composer "part" of
    communicator. I'm using 4.03 (professional edition) on a RH4.2 system:
    libc.so.5.3.12
    libm.so.5.0.6
    ld.so.1.7.14

    Also, someone mentioned to me in private mail about the zombie. Yes, there
    is a zombie, but it is a child of the parent communicator which won't die
    with a kill -9:
    [root@vuser ~]$ pstree -p | head -2
    init(1)-+-amd(374)
    |-communicator(1629)---communicator(1630)
    [root@vuser ~]$ kill -9 1629
    [root@vuser ~]$ pstree -p | head -2
    init(1)-+-amd(374)
    |-communicator(1629)---communicator(1630)
    [root@vuser ~]$

    The only thing that I could see happening is that 1629 is stuck in the
    kernel somewhere, no?
