Process zombies in master node (with Scyld)

We have a problem with bproc and zombies processes. We are using a genetic algorithm application MPI based.
In our aplication, we are executing a external program via system() call.
The problem is that many of these new processes are zombies in the master node, however, they don´t appear as zombie in the slaves nodes.
We are using Scyld 27z-8 with updates.
What can we do to solve this problem?
