emacs hangs when a sub-process goes defunct

Emacs often hangs when I save a buffer which is also tied to an svn repository.
When I run ps I see the emacs child process 'svn' <defunct>.
I just had a very similar situation while running ediffs. But this time emacs hung up
with the child process 'diff' <defunct>.

Does any one know what may be causing this?
