D means it is dead, the process will never be scheduled to execute
again, but there is still pending I/O waiting to settle.  Use fuser
and/or look in /proc/{pid}/fd to see what could be holding up the final 
termination.  Network mounts and sockets are a likely suspect.  Think it
can also happen if the parent process won't accept the SIGCHLD signal
since that also counts as I/O that has to finish before the final
reaping of process resources.
