The multiple processes you are seeing are probably just threads of one
and the same process.  I assume the node where you see multiple lines in
ps is running on a 2.4 kernel using linux threads instead of NPTL.

120 megs doesn't seem that much for a busy node.  I guess it's
roundabout using that as it appears more stable than your other node.
