Persistent process

Often I encounter Cygwin processes that refuse to exit. They leave a
<defunct process> entry in the process table (as seen with ps), and
attempting to "End Process" the process from Windows Task Manager I get
"Unable to Terminate Process/The operation could not be completed.Access
denied." The process is running as me and has not changed its security
context. Does anyone know what causes this?
