This is similar to one of my problems.  I have two users and a 
distribution list whom I've deleted.  They show "User deleted, awaiting 
cleanup" in the Action columns.  I deleted them long ago, but they just 
stay.  I've shut down and restarted many times.  Kolabd is running two 
instances just like for Thomas, stopping kolabd stops both, and starting 
starts two.  No slaves.
It is a minor irritation, but an irritation nonetheless.
