What are possible reasons that a software stay in U:/kern after it

Maybe because the program that ran it (its parent process) has not read
its return value. This is the most known cause for zombie programs under
Unix systems. If you have one, see 'man wait' and 'man waitpid'. Related
MiNT functions are Pwait(), Pwait3() and Pwaitpid().

This is exactly this, perfect answer.
