Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2008-11-27 01:40:22 EST
Description of problem:
When documents are opened in acroread and closed, the process does not die and stays open.
This builds on processes in the back ground and ultimately takes the cpu to 100%

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[huzaifas@huzaifas ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.2 (Tikanga)

How reproducible:
Open multiple pdf files.
Wait for some time, cpu is 100%

Actual results:
acroread process does not die and eventually goes 100%

Expected results:
This should not happen

Additional info:
I am attaching screen shots for two users:
