Run shell scripts from the Script Menu
Authored by: brave_baker on Sep 28, '03 01:33:04AM

I've noticed that if you run shell scripts from the menu, you end up with zombie (dead) processes. If you run 'ps -x' in the terminal, you might see a lot of (sh) lines.

Using an applescript and 'do shell script' seems to work without causing this.
