Occasionally i find that Amarok crashes and a 'ps' returns it as 'defunct' ie. it's a zombie process.
Normally this could be removed by killing the parent. However, in all these instances the parent process is ID no. 1 - init. Unless i'm mistaken that can't be killed without a reboot and i can't restart Amarok without killing it's Living Dead counterpart.
Any ideas how this process can be cleared?
