Perhaps your wmiirc fork is from before this commit?
(at least, when those now-zombie processes were run)

I am unable to reproduce your issue locally. The old wmiirc cleanly
exits when it sees the handshake string on /event/ every time. And
the reload action is causing the wmiirc to exec() within the same
process, with no additional zombies to be seen.

Hope this helps.
