ah, I found the problem with this one.
Below the non-posix command call is "ps aux" which you need to replace
with "ps -elf". You have replaced the command line arguments of "grep",
but "grep -v" is okay with posix.

the call inside needs to be 
                           ps -elf|grep slurpd|grep -v grep

see the diff
So this change will be in the next 2.1. Kolab Server release.
