How do I fix ps and w to see the kernel stats after I've updated my
kernel?  When I type ps, or w, I get:
w: proc size mismatch (16199 total, 640 chunks): Undefined error: 0

I have tried recompiling both w, and ps, and their associated libraries,
but without luck.  vmstat and rstatd both work fine.  The kernel version
is current as of last time a tarfile was created on

I'm pretty sure that this problem is due to something I'm doing wrong
or not doing, rather than it being a mysterious unsolvable bug.

(who desparately wishes for a good old-fashioned /proc based ps)
