I have had ADT hang twice and had to reinstall it to access my projects again after doing a quit process in Activity Monitor.
This time I used a Kill -15 pid in the terminal window and could easily restart it.. Thanks again.

I've been using Linux for quite some years now and also had to deal with misbehaving processes once in a while. I usually try to send a SIGTERM to the processes before trying a SIGKILL. But I didn't know or use the other possible signals not knowing their effect. Thank you for clearing that up.
