Zombie Process

Question

After completing a DVD, my computer goes to sleep (as I don't want to wait around for 50min. while Popcorn recompresses the video). When I return and wake my computer up from sleep, Popcorn becomes a zombie process (does not respond to user input, locks out the DVD drive and does not show a mounted DVD, cannot be Force Quit with Activity Monitor or the Finders own Force Quit menu, and kill -9 doesn't work on it either). The only thing that works is a reboot of the system.

 

This is a repeateable instance, as it has happened more than once. Sometimes, clicking the X icon on the Popcorn window will force Popcorn to quit and spit out the DVD, but not if there are other apps tying up the CPU.

 

If someone can check into this, I would greatly appreciate it.
