setproctitle() on FreeBSD has such (lame behaviour) that it prepends and
appends process title to arguments passed to it.
So with the line:
TITLEset("nnrpd: accepting connections");
which will turn to:
setproctitle("%s %s", ClientHost, what);
the result looks this way:
news 80998 0.0 0.4 3644 1576 ?? INs 5:12PM 0:00.00 nnrpd: nnrpd: accepting connections (nnrpd)
I think this feature of FreeBSD's setproctitle() sucks, but I'd like to have
workaround for this. I recommend:
1. avoid 'nnrpd: ' string in the begin of messages
2. put '-' as first char of messages
