[MiNT] /proc

A question for the real gurus:

Why does /proc shows process names as truncated filenames?

For example, both rpc.mountd and rpc.nfsd show up as rpc.<PID>
instead of rpc.mountd.<PID> and rpc.nfsd.<PID> and same thing for
in.telnetd which shows up as in.<PID> instead of in.telnetd.<PID>
as I would have expected.

This also affects how 'ps' displays the process names, btw.
