Yesterday I built LibreOffice from source. The building process finished correctly and I can run the program, convert files to another formats and so on without any problem. Version:

LibreOffice 40m0(Build:3)

It's been installed on a Linux server (Debian Jessie amd64) without X to get document transformations. And as I said before, all seems right. However, when I check the process with ps command, I find:

4226 4212 1 15:59 pts/1 00:00:00 /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin --minimized --invisible --nologo --nodefault --headless --accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;StarOffice.ServiceManager

4227 4226 0 15:59 pts/1 00:00:00 [soffice.bin] |defunct|

That defunct process reappears everytime I run LibreOffice. It's only killed when I stop its parent (main) process. Do you know what could be the problem?

I have same issue, ps -ef | grep libre shows lot of defunct processes.
