processes keep going after finished?

Hey everyone,

For example, i use desk3d ( for virtual desktop switching, but each time i hiit ctrl-d (my hotkey for it), switch my desktop, and chose it, the process keeps running with a jumpy hourglass in my tasktray for about 20 seconds. The same thing happens with this mozilla start script:

anyone know any way to fix this? It's pretty annoying.
