Hi Max, Ports,

I have a problem with the subject mentioned port that when its parent 
terminal has been lost that it does not exit and remains present causing 
99% CPU usage until killed.

1. Open a xterm(1)
2. su(1) to root typically "su -"
3. Start pftop
4. Kill your terminal in what ever way.

pftop remains present after this causing unneeded CPU cycles.

I will take a look into this when I get some time but I wanted to give you 
a heads up as to I am pretty busy lately with some other projects.

Thanks & Regards,
