Steps to reproduce

1. Create a Console Project
2. Add this in Main method

> var processes = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses ();
> foreach (var process in processes) {
> 	try {
>		Console.WriteLine (process.ProcessName +"\t"+process.ProcessName.Length);
>	} catch (Exception) {
>	}

and run it. All the process name are trimmed to at max 15 characters.

The same thing happens with process.MainModule.FileName. If the FileName is absolute path, it is not trimmed else if it is launched without command line, then it is trimmed. example

> var processes = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses ();
>foreach (var process in processes) {
>	try {
>		Console.WriteLine (process.MainModule.FileName +"\t"+process.MainModule.FileName.Length);
>	} catch (Exception) {
>	}
