Zombie process in libpurple.

  I am developing an application powered by libpurple. But some strange
thing is happening when i execute my application. Whenever a user logins
into MSN 1-2 zombie process of my application is created which is not killed
even after the user logouts. So per user logged in i have 2 zombies which
eats up hell lot of process table space.

  As far as i know libpurple is single threaded and uses glib and my
application is also using glib and does not create any new thread.
 I am confused is this a problem in glib or libpurple or am i doing
something wrong in my application while communicating libpurple. 

Thanks in advance to all great purple developers...
