Yes, they're threads. Look at the output of 'pstree'. Here's what ps
shows on my server:
bf2_1 25902 35.1 7.5 226232 155356 pts/4 S+ Jul15 36:59
bf2_1 25905 0.0 7.5 226232 155356 pts/4 S+ Jul15 0:00
bf2_1 25906 0.0 7.5 226232 155356 pts/4 S+ Jul15 0:00
bf2_1 25907 0.0 7.5 226232 155356 pts/4 S+ Jul15 0:00
bf2_1 25908 0.5 7.5 226232 155356 pts/4 S+ Jul15 0:33
bf2_1 25913 0.0 7.5 226232 155356 pts/4 S+ Jul15 0:00
And here's what pstree shows:
Note the "4*[bf2]" at the end. That indicates 4 additional threads (for
a total of 6, which is what ps is showing.
This is _completely normal_ and is how the server has worked since the
beginning of time.

No, it's got nothing whatsoever to do with third party admin tools.
You'll get this effect no matter what.
Once again, just in case: *this is completely normal* - Do not panic. Do
not adjust your set. Do not pass go. Do not collect 200 [CURRENCY].
