I really don't understand this. According to MSDN4) WinBoard has problems reliably terminating engine processes on a heavily loaded machine, when running a tournament. When I run with ponder off on a dual there never is a problem, but with ponder on more than half the engin processes keeps hanging in the task manager, and when you kill them, WinBoard goes berserk with CPU usage. This is still something that must be fixed.
TerminateProcess should unconditionally kill a process on windows, except
in some exotic circumstances (e.g hardware problems).
"The TerminateProcess function is used to unconditionally cause a process to exit".
