Glad you found it... The killall5 source is part of the sysvinit. I found
it on the Slackware 8 source disk. (I wonder about the "will not kill
processes in current session" thing... does nfsd appear to be in the
same session???? I wouldn't think so, but that would explain why some of
terminations takes so long, and why some signals appear to be disabled)
