Subject: lsof trouble

Hi all,

since we use openwall kernel patched, we have a trouble with a little script 
that help us for monitoring server.
Let me explain.
We have severall server which have trouble with some deleted file still use by 
process. We can see them by a simple:

lsof | grep deleted

So on all servers, we have a little script that done that, launched by a 
special user for monitoring, the user "monitor" with the group "monitor"

Since we use ow patched kernel, this script doesn't work no more in user 
monitor (but still work in root user). In "monitor" user, lsof work but never 
see us "deleted" file.

Is there a solution, or this is an OW bug?
