No Steve, I also have 4 bf processes but non one seem to be a zombie, none 
marked as Z. I'm not sure if it appears after a map change or at start up 
time, but I think it's spawned from the beginning.
As said my config Slackware 9.0 XP processor bf dynamic built.
I'll try later and see exactly what happens if no one else will reply.
