CPU time by seosd is increased constantly and system freezes on stopping PIM after that.
PIM 12.8 SP1 / AIX
When seosd becomes unresponsive and  seosd shutdown is triggered either by watchdog or manually, the threads ( main thread and thread which is trying to shutdown seosd) gets locked up as one of the thread has gone unresponsive.
This is fixed by T6FJ006 that contains single threaded seosd.

The workaround is to start seosd with single threaded mode by following command instead of seload.
# seosd -suppressthreading &
