Maybe I don't know what I am talking about <grin/>, but would it be
possible to lookup the inode of the executable when starting it,
and then look it up before killing it?

hmmmm.... not sure if it is possible to lookup the inode number of a
process running from a deleted executable, but anyway, just an idea...

I think the inode number should stay the same for the duration the
process runs.
