Re: DEFUNCT process
DEFUNCT process is a zombie process, i.e. the process that has torn off
from the terminal so you cannot control it (you may have seen the
message "no such process id" or whatsoever when attempting to kill it).
As far as I know there is no other way to kill it than killing its
parent or rebooting the box (when the parent is init).
