ps seems to have a bug, but I couldn't find any bug database in the SourceForge project (http://procps.sourceforge.net)
Where can I find whether this bug has already been reported (or better yet - fixed) ?
I'm running RedHat (both 7.3 and 2.1) and found a misbehavior when running ps with the option "-C" for command name longer than 8 characters.
This options is supposed to filter the ps output according to the command name, but I found that for names longer than 8 characters - the implementation simply seems to ignore all subsequent characters,
so suppose two long-named processes are running:
ps -C long_name_process_2
I get output of both processes, instead of just the second.
Does your Linux (or other Unix) behave the same ?
Do you know where I can find if this has been reported or fixed ?
