--- Comment #1 from Jilles Tjoelker <jilles at FreeBSD.org> ---
This was deliberately changed in SVN r192242, which excludes the pkill process
itself and its ancestors, unless -a is given. Do you think a special case
should be added here, or r192242 should be reverted? Note that the main sshd
process may somewhat similarly be an ancestor (or not, even if the user is
logged in via ssh).

Why are you using pgrep on init anyway, given that its PID is always 1?
