I am under the impression that this is related to file_completed_cmd or something else around file complete/(auto)commit as it seems there is one zombie for each completed download...

kill -chld $mlnet_pid # has no effect.

voo (downloads.ini):
auto_commit = true
file_completed_cmd = # a bash script that runs one plain bash script for setting PATH and one more complex bash script that calls a Mac OS specific CLI called osascript..

Can you show the `ps faux` output (or Mac OS equivalent to list all process with the pid and parent pid columns) that lists zombie processes and their parent.

Perhaps related to bug #7314 (https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?7314)

Currently 14 zombies after nearly 5 days uptime (and nearly 5 hours CPU time (ps(1)))... I've had worse and it was an issue before i managed to crank up my ulimit/rlimit resource-limits...
