Well, "long-running processes" makes sense in the domain that I am most familiar with -- daemons and servers -- which can usually be easily restarted, but are not restarted for every request (in contrast to CGI or inetd servers). But yes, you're right, it is confusing terminology, since it means different things depending on context.
