Can I suggest you debug it as I suggested?

Alternatively, post the result of

ps -ef -o "pid etime comm"

I did this it scrolls off the page and seems to work. I guess the problem I have is when I pipe the script out put through a grep to get the stashd process only?

But even when I do this

ps -ef -o "pid etime comm"

It comes out fine.

You will have to put in the debug lines as I suggested, those ETIME formats look okay.
