can't kill process - buggy psybnc


I am running PSYBNC

I do the "kill PID" <-- number of course

And I make sure it is killed and I do a "ps U username"

and it is still there, this is exactly printed out:

24837 ? D 0:13 ./psybnc

any help much appreciated!

Maybe the process is a zombie, you can't kill a zombie. A reboot would remove it (but if the process isn't costing too much you can just ignore it).
