The issue with the linux side is just zombie processes nothing else
but with with 4 servers on a machine they do add up with 2 per map
change eventually requireing a reboot which is not a good situation

I really should have sent to seperate emails to avoid the confusion.

Not really we have a perl script which runs all and its totally generic
not just for bf but for all games and both platforms.

As I said in the last email it would all work appart from the fact that
there is no ps that I know of that can give you that information on
win32 :(  If there was I would already have such a temporary
workaround in place :P
