AW: Bug on iMac Mid 2011

We've investigated a bit more and it seems to be a process from the iLok 
license manager, which comes with Steinberg Cubase. Hooray for rootkits in the 
name of copyprotection.

Last time someone submitted this as an error it was due to criminals
using the system. They had changed the command name to show nothing in
'ps' to hide their presence. This command:

  ps -o pid,ppid,command -ax

should give 3 columns like this:

  PID  PPID COMMAND
    1     0 /sbin/launchd
   10     1 /usr/libexec/kextd
   11     1 /usr/libexec/UserEventAgent -l System
   12     1 /usr/sbin/mDNSResponder -launchd
   13     1 /usr/libexec/opendirectoryd
   14     1 /usr/sbin/notifyd

Your process with PID 59 does not have a command name and looks
somewhat like this:

  PID  PPID COMMAND
    1     0 /sbin/launchd
   59     1
   11     1 /usr/libexec/UserEventAgent -l System

It *might* be a normal situation, but before GNU Parallel regards it
as normal, I need you to figure out what PID 59 is doing and why it is
hiding.
