Hi folks! We're running the Prefect server on a local machine. After the update to Prefect 0.15.12 we've run into an issue where zombie processes are getting spawned by GraphQL.
ps ef
yields ~7k zombie processes on the machine; on closer inspection with
ps -auxwwf
we're seeing graph-ql as the culprit for all of those hanging processes. This seems to be an issue elsewhere (eg this report), and I'm wondering if there's anything that may have changed in 0.15.12 to cause this? And what mitigation you all would suggest?

There is an open issue for it in the Server repo - you can track it here.
