It would help if you told us what the program IS, what it does, etc. Can't guess as to what it's doing when we don't know, and you don't provide any useful information.
If this is something you wrote, tell us what it does, and post the relevant portions of the code. Tell us what process(es) it starts, and what it's trying to do. Could be it's just detecting a stale lock or PID file...
