A guy in my office complained his computer (FC3) was slow. I logged in remotely and found 14 soffice.bin processes each consuming 122M. Strangely, OpenOffice.org did not show up in Gnome's list of running programs.
What causes this and what can be done about it?
I did "killall soffice.bin", but that's technical bandage and doesn't fix the problem.
By the way, his system had 22 days uptime.
