Description of problem:
While testing our own speech software, we're seeing that a process running 
off of our tests doesn't properly terminate itself when the parent process 
has been ended.  The process that is still running consumes 99% of the 
CPU, but does not use up any memory.  Also, there is no way to terminate 
this process by running the "KILL" command either.  After one day and a 
few hours, the process is still running when it's parent program has ended 
and it is still consuming 99% of the CPU.  

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

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
