Losing track of processes?

I have a suite of scripts which process logs but get hung after two
hours. My initial looking into it shows that cygwin ps command thinks the
processes are present, but windows task manager doesn't see them at all.
It's as if the parent wasn't informed that it's child died. Perhaps a wait
system call isn't working or memory corruption of data structures
containing this information or race conditions on accessing data
structures, etc.

I have run into this off and on since cygwin1.dll 1.5.12 always hoping
that new versions would make the problem go away. I seem to recall similar
posts by others. I'm now running the 1.5.15 4/12 snapshot.

Anyway hoping there might be suggestions to help track this down. I'll try
strace one more time (when run with it before, the problem did not occur).
