Description

On Mac OS X, using Process.setproctitle does seem to update when inspecting the process using ps but doesn't seem to update the process title in htop.

I don't know why.

Here is my test script.

#!/usr/bin/env ruby

Process.setproctitle "Preparing for sleep..."

10.times do |i|
    puts "Counting sheep #{i}"
    Process.setproctitle "Counting sheep #{i}"

    sleep 10
end

puts "Zzzzzzz"

If I restart htop it updates.
