Zombie/defunct processes in the liquidsoap Container

I’ve moved the Libretime install that we have been using for several years now to a docker environment and am so far really happy with the environment, and the fine-tuning abilities through the docker-compose.yml file.
I’ve moved the the legacy HTML code to ./html the icecast.xml to ./icecast so that these are easier to maintain due to customizations like the SSL pem file reference in icecast.xml.
the postgress data and audio files are of course also volumes mounted into the respective containers.

However, the libretime-liquidsoap container is spawning of about 600 zombie processes in 24 H. this is a problem, has someone seen this too, and if so, how was it resolved??

Is there a way to start the container with --init or something like that, so that these processes can be killed. as they do take up resources on the host system.

Thanks for your thoughts and input,

Pst. Chris.
