I managed to hang up my KDE logout to check the cause. The 
process is "startkde", the u option to ps causes the program 
name to be truncated:
#ps ax | grep Z
 5723 ?        Zs     0:00 [startkde] <defunct>
Pstree shows that startkde is a child of gdm-binary:

init-+-/usr/bin/sealer
     |-acpid
     |-apcupsd---{apcupsd}
     |-atd
     |-auditd-+-audispd---{audispd}
     |        `-{auditd}
     |-console-kit-dae---61*[{console-kit-dae}]
     |-crond
     |-cupsd
     |-2*[dbus-daemon---{dbus-daemon}]
     |-dbus-launch
     |-denyhosts.py
     |-gdm-binary---gdm-binary-+-X
     |                         `-startkde
...

I think that explains why killing X doesn't help, gdm-binary is 
wedged and not wait()ing for its dead child processes.
