Maybe a strange coincidence?

Can 'top' not tell who owns a given process on BSD? (I gather it
mustn't. I don't have access to 'top' on my BSD account.)

Just a wild speculation on my part: perhaps 'swish-efs' is an older
version of SWISH-E which had the HTTP and FS indexer as compile time
options. 'swish94.2' may very well be an old 1994-era SWISH/1.x
release. Those may be subject to the hang-up problems.
Root should be able to find the offender by doing 'locate swish-efs' or,
at worst, 'find / -name swish-efs' The process name should match the
file name here.
