Grrrr… Zombie Processes From Apple Mail

I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but as of the 10.5.6 update, Apple Mail now creates a zombie AddressBookSync process every time you send an e-mail.

If you send enough e-mails, you’ll find that your process table is full and your machine just won’t work properly.
