+# Processes that cannot be updated when they are running
+# Some processes do not cope well when they are upgraded when the binary is
+# running. These include things like firefox, where updating causes the original
+# instance to misbehave as some components are not locked in memory.
+# Applications can be added here that do not cope well with being updated.
+# NOTE: you should not list applications here that the user has no permission
+# or cannot shutdown without the session exploding. For instance, listing
+# /sbin/dbus-daemon or /usr/sbin/haldaemon would be a really bad idea.
+# Seporate entries can be seporated with the ';' character.
