[HELP] [ODDITY] A strange pid running along with circle & autorun..

My MUD's group has found that an additional
couple of processes run along with circle
and autorun... it's called "sleep 60".. and
one time, there were like 1,500 of these
running, and they took up 85M of memory
(reportedly, this is a quote from the sysadmin,
who restarted the machine to get rid of them).
The OS is FreeBSD 2.2.5-STABLE, and we are
running Circle 3.0bpl11+OasisOLC 1.5

Any help would be appreciated.
