This is why I started using iswitchb mode instead.  The processes
wouldn't die, on the other hand they would be going and tie up the
entire Emacs session.  That was worse ;)  iswitchb-mode works really
well: it does not enforce completion in situations like this, only on
buffers.  I found the file-finding of icicles and ido-mode to just
slow me down.
