           Summary: pgrep, pkill do not match long process names
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.21.x
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: unassigned at busybox.net
        ReportedBy: chiszp at hotmail.com

If there is a process running with a long name, e.g. my_long_process_name,
pgrep 'my_long_process_name' will not find the process, however, pgrep
'my_long_process' will. This is unexpected behavior.

It appears the pattern is limited to 15 characters. If the process has more
characters than this, the process should match if all 15 characters do.
