If you do pkill -f first, it'll kill everything that matches. The -f
does the string search on the full command line, including arguments.
Without the -f it only does the first X characters or just the command
name or something like that.
If you want to check which PIDs you get back, use pgrep and pgrep -f and
compare. The -f will include the PIDs from pgrep without the -f as well.
