That process in Activity Monitor is ruby. After a couple of hours of work I can end up with several copies of ruby in Activity Monitor, and that's when the fans get so loud that I realize something is up.

Closing the output window does not stop it. Sometimes the activity spinner in the output window is still going, when this happens, but usually not; it usually looks like the script has finished properly, which again is why I don't notice the problem until the fans spin up.

What I'm now doing is (1) I've ended the script with explicit `exit` and (2) I keep Activity Monitor open while I'm working so I can glance at the CPUs.

What I'm wondering is whether something changed about how the ruby script runner works. m.
