|Subject:||pid leakage in LilyPond|
|Date:||Mon, 01 Feb 2010 14:27:44 -0600|
If LilyPond were a C program, this behavior could be caused by executing an "exec" call to generate a child process but not later waiting for the child to complete. This means that when the child process does complete, it becomes what is called a zombie or defunct pid. I suspect something similar is happening in LilyPond.
