Problem with Netscape making zombies!

Hello Debian Users List!,

	I seem to be having problems with Netscape 3.01 spawning zombie
'netstat' processes, and thus hanging.  I was wondering if anybody knows a
fix for this.  The only cause I can think of for this is that the Netscape
coders forgot to do a 'wait' in the parent process.  If thats the
case, then there's nothing I can do.

	However, I don't recall this problem ever occuring before with
other distributions.  So perhaps it's something else besides sloppy
coding?  And also, I can sometimes get netscape to start.  So this sort of
alludes to the idea that it's not Netscape's fault but something else.

	Thanks in advance for any help on this!
