After upgrading from etch to lenny I noticed the below occurs 
frequently, meanig a defunct (or zombie) exim process appears. If I 
restart exim it will happen rather soon again. It doesn't appear to 
affect exim's functionality though, as far as I can see. But I'd like to 
know what the cause is.

102       8511     1  0 13:45 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/exim4 -bd -q30m
102       9505  8511  0 17:33 ?        00:00:00 [exim4] <defunct>

Thank you,
