> The gnome "Log File Viewer" does not log the Process Name (or
> Application Name) that generated the log item. For example, if an
> outbound internet connection is blocked and this event is logged, only
> the "ID" (i.e., PID) is shown in the report. But the PID is useless

> The "Process Name" should be listed in log items instead of the PID.
