AXP user's gripe about v2.[1-2] messages.

This is a bit off topic, but I have a small gripe, and I am not sure if it
is an AXP specific gripe or not.

On 2.1.131 I notice in dmesg a repetitive message as of:

myprogram: Exception at [<fffffc0000316948>] (fffffc000031694c)

Many times over. The problem is that 'myprogram' is not a single process,
but there are about 200 of the same processes running all compiled by
different users, yet using the same name. How is one to know what process
is actually causing this exception? It would be optimum if it displayed a
PID, or some way to track down the exact process.

Anyway that is just my gripe ;)
