[pptp-server] Strange Daemon Process

When the PoPToP server is listening, a "ps -ef |grep pp" shows the following
info about the server:

root       753     1  0 Apr30 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/pptpd -d

This holds true until more than one one connection is made to the server and
then the resulting ps command shows this:

root       753     1  0 09:14 ?        00:00:00 [pptpd]

Does anyone have any ideas what's going on.  After running all weekend, my two
inbound vpn connections were down and I had about 12 of the [pptpd] processes
showing with ps command.  Anybody see this before?
