Where's the zombie?  I see three sleeping processes (S) and one runnable
(R).  Are you referrering to the "?" for x0?  That just means it doesn't
have a controlling terminal.  The GRASS monitors are kind of funky, but
if you select Display->Monitors->Stop->x[0-6] or "All", it will signal
x[n] to shut down.  TclTkGrass also has an option to stop all monitors
at shutdown (good to just leave always "checked").
