I'm using PCBSD 9 release 64bit. I check updates daily using the
pc-controlpanel to launch the updater and appcafe. After a few days uptime
I noticed multiple instances of pc-controlpanel (thanks to conky).

Here is the output of ps aux | grep pc:

avahi        3074   0.0  0.1  30444   2636  ??  I    Tue09pm     0:08.26

grep pc

The longest uptime is 7 days (because I restarted for other unrelated
reasons) and I've had about 5 instances of pc-controlpanel.

I can safely kill them and they disappear from the ps aux list. I just
wanted to make you aware of this just in case this is a bug.

Thank you,
Mathew Roberts.
