Thanks, Alex. I've since had to restart the machine twice. After the
first time I ran ps axuwwww | grep Z. At that time I had only one
zombie show up in top:
root      3571  0.0  0.0      0     0 tty4     Z<   16:37   0:00 [X] <defunct>
500       3802  0.0  0.0    364   108 tty6     R+   16:45   0:00 grep Z

As soon as the machine slows down again, I'll run top, and in the
event of zombies, I'll run ps.

I don't think that the problem is anacron, as Andy suggested, as the
machine was up all night. I ussually don't turn the computer off at
