I don't know the underlying problem, but there were lots of ruby and squeakvm
processes reparented to root, and no clear indication of what is going wrong.
I killed off as many of the reparented processes as I could find.

Currently there is one Jenkins job running, and one squeakvm process corresponding
to that job. I'll look again in a day or so and see how many runaway processes
may have come back.
