[squeak-dev] How to get rid of instances of ExternalUnixOSProcess

I start external OS processes via the class side method command:
The returned instances correctly show runState #complete but the
instances won't get garbage collected.
Pointer Finder gets me ThisOSProvess allMyChildren.
I start the external program every few seconds so the instances accumulate.
So should I manually send unregisterChildProcess: or should I reuse one
instance of ExternalUnixOSProcess via repeated forkChild to restart the
program? Or something completely different?
