script fragment

pgrep(1) command would occasionally output "pgrep: Cannot get process list (kvm_getprocs: Bad address)" when issuing `pgrep -f $0` from a script.
It has failed 3 times during a week period, in which the script was run from cron(8) every minute.
I wasn't able to replicate the issue manually in any kind of loop.
