several updates of Raspbian later I do not need to send sigchld any 
more. So I assume it was a bug in Raspbian introduced by the transition 
to the Pi 2. Nothing to do with OSProcess.

Also I now use the version of OSProcess which limits the number of 
children it holds on to.

This has run uninterrupted now for two weeks without a single more 
Zombie and Squeak's memory consumption being constant.
