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):

Steps to Reproduce:
1.nohup run_lots_of_text.sh <portNum> <startSetNum> <endSetNum> > 
ttsRun<startSetNum>_<stopSetNum>.log 2>&1 &
