Not in the trunk, no.

I could not reproduce that bug on my platform (Fedora 17, GCC 4.7.2,
configured --with-x-toolkit=lucid).  I did a call-process-region on
a small buffer a few times, both with the minimal number of arguments
and with BUFFER being t, and never created zombies.

That sounds like a plausible rev, but it was installed into the
trunk two weeks ago.  Did you not do a build, or not use Emacs, for
a week or two?

If you're still having the problem, might be time for a bug report.
