Does readproctitle remove old messages

When I ps'd, readproctitle showed some error messages.  I thought I fixed the problem and then rebooted. The Error messages still displayed.

Have I still got a problem, or does readproctitle store old messages, even after a reboot?

How do you clear out old messages?

It does not store old messages. You must have a recurring problem. Can you post the exact error message ?

Thanks. You have answered my immediate question. I did not want to spend hours debugging, then find out I had cured the problem when I started.  

My actual problem will be another question if I cannot sort it!
