Command Line Option: -pn

I am using the new pre-beta WinDbg debugger: 5.1.2240.1 (build 2195)
with Windows 2000.

The -pn command line option does not appear to be working, at least not
the way it used to. I used to be able to specify "-pn explorer.exe" to
start
the debugger and attach it to the Windows Explorer.

I now get an error message: Invalid Process Name: explorer.exe

Any ideas?

Best regards,
Bruce Engle
