I get a zombie proces everytime I run Bitwig. Can some of you other guys check if you have it also before I maybe file a bug. Could be just my system.

In terminal I do a ps -A |grep defunct and get:

username 2389 ? 00:00:00 show-splash-gtk "defunct"

It can't be killed, but ps -ef |grep defunct reveals the parent pid:

username 2389 2388 0 13:32 ? 00:00:00 [show-splash-gtk] "defunct"

ps 2388 gives:

2388 ? S 0:00 bitwig-studio

Edit..: Bitwig is working fine, no problems at all, but as long as it is running I have this zombie process. It vanishes again when I quit bitwig.

I also have that zombie process. It disappears if I close Bitwig. show-splash-gtk itself seems to be a PNG viewer which is used to display splash.png (located in resources) at the start of the application. I dont' think this is a big problem.

Cool.. and thx. No it's not a problem. I'm just not a big fan of zombies, unless it involves a lot of blood and creepy noises..
