Ok, I've expressed it in wrong way. I meant that there was a problem
not being able to properly signal them to die. Of course, once they
are dead proper OSs free no longer used resources.

Yep, not a big problem.

Anyway, related with this and current failing autobuilds I'm not sure
if the ones that are failing are due to failures of each daily run or
if they are failing because of lets say failures of previous days.

I know that Tor is very busy, but I think that if it is possible it
would be nice to verify that the case of failures caused in the same
build run are not happening.
