For some reason, some of the user apps on my system will get hung, and 
won't die when somebody exits unceremoniously. I of course have to go in 
and kill the process, which proceeds to suck up all of the CPU. This 
seems to happen most with "pine" and "tin", but will happen with other 
software as well.
I thought it might have something to do with the user environment, but I 
tried it with the default .login and a bourne shell and it still does the 
same thing. 
I thought of setting a trap to kill the processes when a hangup signal is 
sent, but that should really be happening anyway,  when someone gets 
disconnected.   
I'm running 2.1.0-RELEASE, on a P100 with 64Megs of RAM. If there's any 
other info I should include, please tell me.
