Pidgin has a status of zombie with N/A on resident memory
and shared memory. Im still using pidgin and havent noticed
a problem but there are at least 100 different pidgin processes
running. My OS is Ubuntu 16.04, Pidgin 2.10.12.

What would cause this to happen and short of killing each one,
what can I do?
