to see the command line arguments and identify the process.

*Some* process using perl is still using the old libraries. It is a
somewhat irky bug in checkrestart to only show the binary and not
also its command line arguments. For example, I have the following
process running at the moment:

18023 ?        Sl     7:22 /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/bin/calibre

i.e. calibre, which is programmed in Python and hence run by the
Python executable. checkrestart would only show
"18023 /usr/bin/python2.7", leaving me to guess whether that is
calibre or some other Python-interpreted process. It is key to
understand that there can be multiple Perl/Python processes running
at the same time, using different versions of the installed libraries
depending on when they were started.
