I think this is a good idea.  However, experimentation here showed that
at least on some machines (like HPUX), there's a pretty tight limit
before ps cuts off the display, and the more verbose messages discussed
on -hackers cause the last few digits of the filename to be cut off.
Which makes the display just about entirely useless.  So I went with
these messages:

archiving %s
last was %s
failed on %s

We might need to make it even briefer, perhaps

at: %s
last: %s
failed: %s

depending on reports from the field.

Applied patch attached.
