Is it possible that these processes are blocked while exiting?
There's currently an unresolved bug where processes get wedged either
during startup or exit. See if you have any processes in state "START"
in top, or with an E in the "STAT" column:
ps ax -O ppid,flags,mwchan | awk '$6 ~ /E/ || $6 == "STAT"'
