I don`t think the order matters, if process is not Zombie yet and about to
be killed by MTT later - it is a good flow.
If process is already Zombie - mtt will not be able to kill it anyway and
and can stop waiting and switch to the new task.

yep, sounds like it can be the cause, need to look into this code.
