[hobbit] HPUX and procs column

I was seeing this on both hp/ux 11.00 and 11.23.  I fixed it by changing
the line in hobbitclient-hp-ux.sh to:
UNIX95=1 ps -ef -o uid,pid,ppid,cpu,stime,tty=TTY -o time,comm
I guess you could use ps -A instead of -ef but both work.  You can leave
out the =TTY and second "-o" if you don't care if the TTY column is not
named TTY.

	What version of HP-UX are you running? I am running 11.11 and
here it works.

		I just started doing some process monitoring in Hobbit.
It's working fine on all platforms except HP/UX.  On HP/UX systems the
status goes to Warning immediately, and when you get the details it
		yellow Expected string COMMAND not found in ps output
		UID        PID  PPID  C    STIME TTY          TIME CMD
		root         0     0  0  Jul  5  ?           04:10
		root         1     0  0  Jul  5  ?           35:35 init
		I checked and sure enough, HP/UX seems to use "CMD" as
the header for the ps column that the other operating systems call
"COMMAND", so it isn't checking the processes right.
		Is that string somewhere in hobbit that I can change,
like a script, or would it be compiled into the binary?
