 Yes it is a real process.

 well, at first by using the rc. script that starts and stops, but it 
 leaves the one process.  It cannot even be 'kill -9'ed  I have heard that 
 a newer kernel with some patches helps this problem...

 Dont have access to the box right now, and dont really want to mess with 
 shuttign down the server, since I have to reboot it to resolve the 
 problems it causes.

 Havent tried HUPing the actual server... we need to be abel to shut it 
 down, and bring it back up automatically for the purpose of safely 
 calculating webstats, and rotating logs

 Not that we have seen.. the server must be rebooted
