I don't know if it is useful info or not, but on my Ubuntu 9.10 system,
I had about 15 of those zombie processes, and the frontend would lock up
frequently. The lockup involved the frontend freezing for about a
minute, then when it came back it would be in Myth Gallery with no
images no matter what screen I was in to begin with. I copied udevadm
to udevinfo and both the zombies and the freezes stopped, and now my
system works as it should. I know that isn't the "right" fix, but it
has been the difference between working and not working for me.
I haven't smoked for 3 years, 3 months and 3 days, saving $5,361.42 and
not smoking 35,742.82 cigarettes.
