Strange behavior the last few weeks.
Stopping ( even saved state ) a guest leaves a zombie process on the host.
Each new start and it uses a new pid and the zombie is still there.
Stop all guests and the main manager and all processes including the
zombie processes finally clear.
Host = Ubuntu 12.04 LTS guest = any.

Normally I would not have seen this but the processor was doing work
when it should have been idle. I have never seen a zombie process using
CPU ticks before. Wait long enough and the %CPU will finally get to
zero but it seems to take like 20 to 30 minutes to do so.
