stopping transmission emits spurious warnings:

  $ /etc/init.d/S92transmission stop
  Stopping bittorrent client transmission-daemon...
  start-stop-daemon: warning: this system is not able to track process names
  longer than 15 characters, please use --exec instead of --name.

Update our startup script to match what was done upstream 9 years ago:
