This one has (also) already been presented (because included) in my qt4-mac concurrent ticket, but a bit of independent exposure might be good.

Starting a non-existant command through QProcess leads to zombie processes, i.e. inactive, post-termination processes that cannot exit completely because of an open link to their parent process (in this case).

This is a bug for which a patch has been contributed but not yet included in Qt4:

# (25) avoid leaving zombies when starting an inexisting executable through QProcess
