startstop_unix on Mac OS X has weird ps failure

Description

On a recent compile of startstop_unix on Mac OS X I noticed this error about an illegal -G option for ps. Works fine otherwise, but I think we should probably clean this up.

ps: illegal option -- G
usage: ps [-aACcehjlmMrSTuvwx] [-O|o fmt] [-p pid] [-t tty] [-U user]
       ps [-L]
.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

as per IM with scott, this only seems limited to older Mac OS X versions, like tiger....fun!

  • Status changed from assigned to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

Since this is OLD os version related, I am punting on it and we can call it a known issue.....a work around per os version would be too ridiculous the more I think about it.
