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.
