Description

The process name currently seems to be "mono" (as shown in gnome-system-monitor). This should be the actual application name instead.

Are there some GNOME guidelines or specifications about this? I wonder because Tomboy is not doing this and is part of the official desktop.

I think there are no guidelines for this, but it makes the user happier. With this feature you will identify smuxi processes in htop or gnome-system-monitor better. Also a do "killall smuxi-whatever" is possible. In my opinion mono should handle this, but it wont fix it: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=147947.

A workaround is to use the "prctl" (http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/prctl.2.html). If desired, i can do it and make a pull request then.

You can do this but please watch out for Linux, *BSD, Mac OSX and Windows differences
