Anyone seen things like this?
7542 p2 RN 42:51.11 rsh solutions tail -f /usr/local/news/foo
This process is *long* dead; at least, I hit ^C, and got my prompt back.
kill does nothing to it. No response, no effect. No failure, either.
It does go away if I reboot, at least, the last one did :), but I'm wondering
if this is a bug (I assume it is), and if so, if anyone else has seen it,
and if there's a fix.
