Sometimes it happens on my FreeBSD 6.1-STABLE/AMD box, that a process,
in most cases xine, firefox oder thunderbird, show status 'STOP' in top

Trying to kill them as root (sending signal 9 throught 'kill' or
'killall') doesn't have any effect.

Can anyone help and tell how to kill such a job? The only way  getting
rid of those processes is reboot the box and this can not be the right
way.

Thanks,

A process cannot be killed in certain situations. For instance, if the
process is waiting on a IO request, it will block all signals until the
request is completed or fails. Could you mount /proc, and do a truss on the
process? Also, which version of FreeBSD are you running?

Thanks,
Corey
