On the first excersize in Chpt. 5, WB 1, your state that the
deliverable is a "Suspended" ls -R /.
I believe that you should say "Stopped", as the "T" in the PS report
stands for "Stopped" (or Traced, but we won't go there :^).
hit one of your author's sore spots... stopped to me could easily imply stopped
for good, which is not the case, so I tend to emphasize suspended.
that being said, official Unix term is stopped, so I tweaked to include that
(I would also change "Running" to "Runnable", but we won't go there...)
