Actually, I had this problem a while ago.  It seems that one version of
getty_ps would seg foult if you gave it invalid parameters (i.e. in the
wrong order).  I finally figured it out and it worked fine.  Check to
make sure they are correct, and try to run it from the command line just
to check it.
