Hi Johan,

We were on IRC today.  I mentioned that eshell's built-in kill command
doesn't seem to be able to kill any processes -- not even xeyes.  But
/bin/kill works fine.  Example:  kill 4946 didn't kill xeyes on my PC,
but /bin/kill 4946 did.  I asked if anyone could confirm this.

You <bojohan> and Phil Hagelberg <technomancy> both confirmed the bug.
 Plus, you wrote a little patch to esh-arg.el and told me it would fix
the problem:

<  (add-text-properties 0 1 '(number t) str))
>  (add-text-properties 0 (length str) '(number t) str))

Yes.  It fixes the problem.  Could you please commit it?  :)

Thanks in advance,
-Jason
