This (now) applies to (Macports port) version 3.1.0 on Mac OS X 10.6.8.
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...
Should i submit a new bug report? I guess i will if this doesn't get commented for some time...

Please check if this bug still is in current CVS version.
You should find a tarball of current CVS in files section of
this project: http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/mldonkey/

Please report if the bug still happens with current CVS.
In case the bug is still there please report the Ocaml version
used for compiling.
Please also try this binary build:
