Perhaps it depends on the sysvinit-utils version being used with the
desktop (2.86.ds1-38) and iBook (2.86.ds1-53), which I couldn't check as
the downgrading threathened to remove some essential packages and I
didn't feel like running any risk at the moment; but I would
be grateful if anybody familiar with pidof could confirm.

Hi Tom,
just in case you would like to go further into the question, I
downgraded sysvinit-utils (and hence 'pidof') to the same 2.86.ds1-38
version I use to check running processes on pg_7.4 and got exactly the
same results.
So, this could mean something has changed between pg_7.4 (or pg_8.1 I've
been using for some time without any like problem) and pg_8.3 concerning
the _visibility_ of processes to ordinary user.
