ps returns truncated command line in dune/ArtSupport/DuneToolManager.cxx
In n dune/ArtSupport/DuneToolManager.cxx,
sscom << "ps -fp " << pid << " >" << sftmp;
is used to determine the command line and arguments. Problem is, the ps command truncates its output based on the value of the COLUMNS environment variable, leaving a partial string of arguments. This is becoming more common with /cvmfs pathnames.

If I run Jason's example (see the slack thread under larsoft), and put a breakpoint in DuneToolManager.cxx after the temporary file is created with the output of ps, I see output truncated at 80 characters.
