	To all MRTG and/or RRD users.  Did any body come up with a way to
prevent cron zombies.  My MRTG/RRD batch files that run every 5 minutes
sometime turn into zombies.  I know that it might be because some of my
larges batch files might not be finished in 5 minutes.  And there for run
again.  Is there a way I can check for prevent these zombies from happening.
Below is an example script i run via cron.

 -= here is one of my crontabs. =-

0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * *

-= Below is a sample script. =-
