Unrecognized Error message

Has anyone seen this error message when logging into Prelude?  What does it mean.


"The CLEANUP is cleaning up the dead processes, please wait for a while"

This appears to be a UniData problem based on the point where it starts (udt) and the fact of the background processes running.   Still a mystery on the cause.  Had to reboot the system.

Unidata has a program called "cleanupd" (the "cleanup deamon") that finds sessions that were once connected to telnet, but telnet was disconnected so they're orphaned.  This program will release the record locks held by that program and will terminate Unidata as normally as possible to avoid corruption.

Normally this runs in the background and you don't see anything of it.  I'm wondering if cleanupd is stalled for some reason and that's why you're seeing the message?
