Custom operators & blocking

If I have a custom operator that calls a process in attached mode and the process blocks, shouldn’t the parent process that used the operator go into a blocked state also?
I have seen several times, with different operators, the child process will block but the parent state continues to be running. The problem is that I cannot see when there is an issue because nothing shows up in the blocked view.
Is this normal?

I have read in the documentation about the different modes when running a pam process, is the issue that I am running in attached mode? If I change it to inline, won't that mix up the process datasets(meaning that the child process will not have its own dataset, and that could cause issues).
