Zombified programs

I am using xubuntu 7.10 and am finding that many of my programs are not
closing properly but are becoming zombies according to the system
monitor. These programs include gedit, the gimp and mousepad. This did
not seem to happen in 7.04.

Any thoughts? Is this a problem in the making or nothing at all to
worry about? Or maybe the system monitor is not updating correctly?
