In Perl I could do a

open(PS_F, "ps -o pid,user,comm -u interch_user|");

loop over PS_F and

($pid, $user, $comm) = split;

At least, that works on linux, I still have to see if it works on Sun.

Bingo!   Which sucks in a way as I would much rather find out why this 
is happening (although finding work arounds is enjoyable too).  Since IC 
works great on Ubuntu and FreeBSD, I am going to assume that this is 
just a goofy Sun thing.

Live and learn.

Thanks for all the feed back everyone.
