This script complains that it:

Can't get text item 6 of "perl -w /sw/bin/fink update-all".

Does it fail with others' shell utilities or Xfree86?

one solution for better name parsing in situations like this:

the script could get 'ps aux' twice, once the way it currently does with app paths, and then a second time as 'ps aux -m -w -w -c', which returns the executable's name. then it could check if the executable's name is 'LaunchCFMApp' or not, and only call the kludgey name parsing if it is.
