I tried that. It looks similar, but it was not Korn.

There are more than 190 processes, and all of them make sense. I tried 
to close all programs, still I can't see the "bad guy".

Is there no way to just simply check which program connected to that 
task bar? There should be a way. I tried "lsof", but there are too many 
entries to search through. What libraries does a program need to open 
to create a symbol there?
