Most likely.  {p,k}trace it whilst it's eating processor time and see
what it's doing.  The most likely scenario is that it's reading stdin
(which has gone away), ignoring the read error and re-issuing the
read.  In this case, fixing it would be a matter of finding the
relevant code (main input handling loop) and implementing the missing
error checking.
