      Description

      CommandLineUtils is used in Maven-Surefire to start forks which execute tests. It is a well known issue that sometimes child processes are not killed correctly. This is a known limitation of JVM, and the only reliable way to implement it would be platform specific.

      Bug report in Surefire JIRA:
      http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/SUREFIRE-773

      JVM bug report. It's Windows specific, but the problem exists on Linux and OSX as well.
      http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=4770092

      I'm proposing either 1) to implement several platform specific implementations of ProcessHook or 2) to make the mechanism of killing processes extendable for clients of the library.
