Previously, in some rare cases such running processes could create quite serious problems for the agent. They may prevent or damage agent installation due to the locking of file.

Since this release the problem is resolved. All processes, which have binaries located in %programdata%/checkmk/agent, will be unconditionally terminated on service exit.
