Nonetheless, if a "stop" and a "kill" don't do it, there isn't much 
option left.....at least not that I'm aware of.  And if there is, I'd be 
more than happy to use it instead of kill -9.  (Maybe kill -15 or 
something??)  I dunno.  In any even, I'm still doing my best to trace 
one of the problem processes, as Jerry suggested, from the production 
environment.  Just have to wait until it rears its ugly head again 
(which oughtta be tomorrow, if past behavior is a precedent for future 
behavior).  Thanks for all the input on this fellas, I appreciate it!
