Lynx 2.7 ; Redhat Linux 4.1 (linux kernel 2.0.27)

i'll check those ... i've seen both the ps and top feeds, and it just
looks like the processes are sitting there (with no one connected to them,
re: the who) doing who knows what. the more there are, the slower the
machine flies.

This is what i have speculated, but I wanted to 'report' this to this list
just in case this isn't a unique occurrance. I am going to send a message
to my users to remind them to disconnect properly.

thanks again.
