BTW, killing init would be helpful. If processes will not die this way,
you will see error message on console during shutdown.

But, I think you understand my initial question: I suspected bad-coded
parent process. Now I see this is ps or kernel failing.
So, a couple of diagnostic tests:
1) check if zombie-structures was allocated in kernel
# vmstat -m|fgrep zombie
2) what is your threading library in /etc/libmap.conf ? Whatewer it is,
try to change it and look what happens. (I suspect KSE-related problems)
3) what does sockstat think about theese processes?
