I forgot to add, this i after the latest commits. What verdion are you 
using, the commit tag would be helpful.
( I've alos just done a major update to this system so there may be some 
newer system libraries that are causing this.)
...and.. I have just noticed that the IDE itself is leaving lots of 
processes running when it exits as well. Regardless of whether the 
projects that were opened had shells's or execs in them.  And I had a 
lot of gardening scheduled today, sigh.)
