| How can I permanently get rid of these zombies?

I recommend

Unfortunately it seems to require flash.  So this might be better:

(Actually, I've only read the follow up book:
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_Z
Very good.)

Zombies happen because the parent process neglects to reap them.  So
it is a bug in or involving the parent process.  You should be able to
figure out what the parent is.  That may also be a hint as to why
netstat is being run at all.

One way of finding out process relationships is to run this command in a 
very wide xterm window:
  ps laxgwf | less
