Upgrading to 2.0.x from 1.2.x involves changing a large number of
support programs, including the procutils.

My experience is just the opposite: I haven't had any problem with
2.0.x, and ps doesn't die on my. From my perspective, 2.0.x is very
stable. (I do leave my keyboard often. I usually remain logged on
for weeks, with no ill effects from ps or any other utility.

Could you give us some more data about the ps problem. What version
of ps? What version of libc? What version of the kernel? If you
compiled your own kernel, what version of gcc?
