You're welcome. I suggest you think about removing the recursion that Helter pointed out, too. I never noticed it when I skimmed your program the first time, because I was only looking for the cause of your zombie problem. Wouldn't it be much cleaner to structure your code like

while (1) { process_files(); # loop(), essentially sleep $interval; }
?
