actually this is linux ps in general, not just debian.  it's a result of
ps becoming unix98 compatible.  unix98 (i.e. sysv) options are preceded by
a -... and if you want to use BSD-style options you put no leading dash.

or you can setenv I_WANT_A_BROKEN_PS to get the BSD-only behaviour :)

dbmmanage must also be broken on solaris if you've got sysv ps in your
path first.

this is true for pretty much all linux systems as well, not just debian.
