Just a wild (completely uninformed) guess:
rpc.* register with portmap, so they probably also try to unregister with it.
What if portmap gets killed before the rpc.* processes, will they upon
-TERM try to unregister first and thus run into a timeout?
You could try putting portmap on the don't kill list and see if that
helps anything?
