Unfortunately that patch works but has unintended operation that can be
seen with the following.
sleep 1000 &
No matching processes belonging to you were found
+ Terminated: 15 sleep 10000
It then kills sleep and still prints no processes belong to you message.
Now pkill -v sleep on my system actually causes my Xserver to exit with a
unexpected signal 15.
Without the patches it works as it should...
