Hi Mathgroup,

Today I realised a strange behaviour of Mathematica.
When I export a graphic to the JPEG or GIF
format mathematica starts PNM.exe and JEPG.exe or GIF.exe.
But Mathematica do not terminate these programms!
So they will run until I use a ``kill -9 PID[PNM.exe] ...''.
I think for a commercial programm like Mathematica it
should be possible that the Kernel or FrontEnd
terminates child processes after using them.

Please help me to fix this problem if you know
a answer, because these programms are eating my memory
an drinking cpu time.
