Please apply the below patch to ShellScaffold.  Otherwise you get a
warning with procps version 3.2.0:

Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See http://procps.sf.net/faq.html

This is from the FAQ:

Why does "ps -aux" complain about a bogus '-'?

According to the POSIX and UNIX standards, the above command asks to
display all processes with a TTY (generally the commands users are
running) plus all processes owned by a user named "x". If that user
doesn't exist, then ps will assume you really meant "ps aux". The
warning is given to gently break you of a habit that will cause you
trouble if a user named "x" were created.
