FT on Unix/AIX Agent hanging sporadically leaving zombie processes on the host

When performing a file transfer with an AIX Agent, it is possible for the file transfer to become stalled and, once this occurs, an additional process is left on the OS that has to be terminated normally (a restart of the Agent does not eliminate the additional process).
This is an internal timing issue for when a File Transfer receives a QUIT message while the end of transfer is resolving.
