Zombie VisBuildPro.exe hanging around after build

We are using Visual Build Pro 7.2. We are using the scheduled task to launch VisBuildPro.exe. Most of the time the build succeeds and it completes all the steps but we are left with a VisbuilPro.exe running in the task manager and of course the scheduled tasks shows that it is still running. We are creating a marker file that prevents another build from running if the marker files exist. We got that from the Visual Build samples. The marker file is deleted at the end of the build as it should. We have the scheduled task run and start a build every 10 minutes if the marker file does not exist. I just put an Exit action as the last step hoping to kill the rogue Visbuildpro.exe that hangs around. If the rogue task is sitting there running and a checkin is submitted nothing gets built unless we manually kill the rogue task or it goes away by itself after a couple of hours. Can anyone help? Would it help to use the VisBuildCmd.exe?

Thank you.

Trying VisBuildCmd.exe couldn't hurt. If updating to 7.2a doesn't help, you could add a Kill Process step at the end of the build to kill [Builder.ProcessID].
