Package: thttpd
Version: 2.21b-11.2
Severity: normal
Tags: woody


while investigating a patch for 236329, I discovered that thttpd creates
a number of threads to satisfy the requests and these turn into zombie
processes after the request is done. From "top":

26743 www-data  15   0   824  824   592 S     0.0  0.1   0:00 thttpd
 3718 www-data  10  10     0    0     0 Z N   0.0  0.0   0:00 thttpd <defunct>
 3719 www-data  15  10     0    0     0 Z N   0.0  0.0   0:00 thttpd <defunct>

I'm not sure this is a bug - the zombies get cleaned up after a few minutes.
But I thought I would report it, as this seems odd behaviour for a server
that is supposed to thrive under high load.
