Try running chkproc -v and cat /proc/(pid)/cmdline for each pid that chkproc

AFAIR chkproc reads the output of ps(1) and compares it to the directories in
/proc. Maybe some processes simply stopped/started between running the ps
command and reading the /proc directory? Does chkproc find those processes every
time it's run?
