Description Bill Pemberton 2000-12-21 13:58:32 EST
The -u option to ps has a max uid that is lower than the 2.4 kernels max
(as in ps thinks 16-bit, the kernel does 32-bit).  If I create a user with
a large uid (100000 for example) and then do a ps -fu <user> I get:

ps: error: User ID out of range
