I saw this in passing and it looks like there was another previous bug
there already.  I see "ps auxww; ps ef;" and I think immediately that
the original intention must have been "ps auxww; ps -ef;" since that
would be the normal idioms for BSD style and SysV style ps.

Which I think means this change is begging to be made:

-  cmds_='date; date +%N; free; who -a; w; ps auxww; ps ef'
+  cmds_='date; date +%N; free; who -a; w; ps auxww; ps -ef'
