I think you're probably seeing a two-thread system, here, and NOT two
separate processes. The thing to note is the third column, wihch is
(usually) the parent process id. In process 9613, it's parent is 1, or
/sbin/init, which is what you would expect if you start bbstored on
startup. The second process is parented by the first, so it's either a
forked of the first, which seems unlikely, or maybe the housekeeping
Hope this helps.
