Subprocess Poll() to sport Application Crash

I have an application which launches a sub-process using the sub
process/Popen module, which seems to work great. However on occasion the
launched process will crash, it doesn't appear to full terminate though as
when I run a 'top' command from the Linux system the process is still
displayed in the list, it just appears to be dormant and the TIME+ for the
application stops incrementing.
Can I use the poll() method from the sub-process object to test for this? I
would love to test it however the crash is so rare it's very difficult to
simulate, so thought I'd try and see if anyone has any experience of this.
