Running top -t shows that the program has one thread in killlwps state and one in STOP state. There is apparently no way to restart the stopped thread, or to kill the process. There is no explanation in "man top" of what killlwps is. "apropos killlwps" returns nothing.

I'm not sure whether to put this in documentation (because there's no explanation of killlwps) or something else (if there's no way to kill the process).
