I'll throw some more fuel on this fire:
[root at java /root]# ps --version
procps version 2.0.6
[root at java /root]# echo $COLUMNS
[root at java /root]# ps -ef|grep CGServer
root 19917 19894 0 18:52 pts/7 00:00:00 grep CGServer
[root at java /root]# ps -ef|grep CGServer|wc -l
[root at java /root]# COLUMNS=122 ps -ef|grep CGServer|wc -l
COLUMNS was set automatically on login from my terminal dimensions. So how
does one explain the behaviour above ?
