not shure if i understand you fully here (do you mean the PID of the rss2email 
procs?) - you might write a short wrapper shell script in between which starts 
rss2email and writes out the PIDs i.e. into a file.

rss2email &

echo $R2E_PID >> /some/file/with/rss2email.pids

Why not trying to get the rss2email error from the shell directly (i know that 
it may take some time / many starts to un into that error in practice...)? 
Then you can see what / where it is hanging there...

hth a little
