Hi guys,
I've just committed some changes to close an issue but the build on windows has been failed

The reason is the following

Caused by: org.codehaus.cargo.container.ContainerException: Failed to stop the Tomcat 7.x
container. Check the [F:\hudson\hudson-slave\workspace\Syncope-windows\core\target/log/cargo-output.log]
file containing the container logs for more details.
	at org.codehaus.cargo.container.spi.AbstractLocalContainer.stop(
	at org.codehaus.cargo.maven2.ContainerStopMojo.doExecute(
	at org.codehaus.cargo.maven2.AbstractCargoMojo.execute(
	at org.apache.maven.plugin.DefaultBuildPluginManager.executeMojo(
	... 28 more
Caused by: org.codehaus.cargo.container.ContainerException: Server port 9080 did not shutdown
within the timeout period [120000]
	at org.codehaus.cargo.container.spi.AbstractLocalContainer.waitForPortShutdown(

Could you kill zombie processes again?
Probably we have found a temporary workaround to avoid this situation.

Thank you in advance.
