On my 6.1 system I have a script that launches some java programs  
[jdk142] and when I do a "ps -auxwww" I get the whole java command  
line that was used in launching.

On my 6.2 system with jdk15 teh scame scripts launch the same java  
programs but I just get [java] in the ps output.  Nothing in the ps  
manpage jumped out at me.  I would like to be able to get the whole  
commandline when I do the ps
