As it was already explained to you before the release of Squeeze, this is far
far far away from proper testing for a package like open-vm-tools. It should
be tested on current (and maybe even older) ESX instalations. Ballooning,
live-migrations, snapshots with quiesce option and all the other nice features
need to work before it should be released as "stable".

So you've patched your kill(1) to block until the process is gone? Luckily
this patch did not make it into Debian.
