Since I updated wicd to 1.6.0, anytime I disconnect frmm a wireless network to another one, the dhcpcd zombie process appears...
Thanks in advance
I think that has something to do with the autoconnect stuff in wicd. On my system I get no ethernet connection when I plug in a cable, unless I've connected before with wicd and dhcpcd is already running in the background. It just seems to difficult to fix that bug upstream
Thanks for your response
If you run:
sudo /etc/rc.d/wicd restart
It kills the zombie dhcpcd.
Not the best solution, but it's a faster way to get rid of that zombie process than rebooting
If you have that zombie process it's because you've lost connection and reconnected again, so reconnecting once more by restarting wicd shouldn't be painful...

Just found this dhcpcd zombie process and Google it.
It might be related to this wicd bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/wicd/+bug/206960
