Dear maintainer,
while building packages I noticed that a builder stuck for a very long
time.  After inspection turns out it was waiting to be able to umount
/proc, which was kept busy by a process like
    ./lepton -socket=/tmp/f93406ea-94c9-45e3-a35b-bdfb1452a9ec -timebound=10ms -preload
with an open fd.

Killing that process unlocked the situation.

I was able to reproduce this in my notebook too.

That said, I find totally unacceptable for a build to leak a process and
leave it zombie (because that process had no parent, actually), so I'm
filing this at RC level.

(PS: in the meantime, blacklisted for reproducibility testing, but be
happy the build was reproducible (after having poked it) ;))
