doesn't unexpected termination (ie. not waiting for the child process)
of a parent process cause zombies?
out of curiosity is this a redhat machine? i know there was a problem
with some verisons of redhat ignoring the SIGCHLD signal... and
multitail uses that in it's ui.c code. if you send it to the
background that COULD be the problem.
i always use 'screen' myself. i use "screen -S mt" and then run
when i connect via ssh on another machine i can do:
screen -D -R mt
and i get my multitail session back.
the screen/ssh combination is very nice if you're never around a
server machine :)
there are ways to avoid zombie processes
