Bug Description

Impact
------
3.28.2 is the latest bugfix release in the stable 3.28 series.

https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-system-monitor/tree/NEWS
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-system-monitor/log

Test Case
---------
We can test the bugfix:

1. Ubuntu 18.04 LTS uses the snap version of gnome-system-monitor for new installs. To ensure, we're testing the right version, run
sudo apt install gnome-system-monitor
2. Install chromium-browser (apt or snap is fine).
3. Run chromium-browser.
4. Run gnome-system-monitor from the command line (to avoid picking the snap version if you have that installed)
5. In the list select "chromium-browser --type=renderer"
6. Click End Process

The end process dialog should display "Are you sure you want to end the selected process "chromium-browser"

With 3.28.1, it instead displayed a very large dialog with the entire command line argument between those quotation marks.

Feel free to uninstall chromium-browser or gnome-system-monitor afterwards.

Regression Potential
---------------------
The GNOME stack has an SRU Micro-release exception
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#GNOME

This is a very minor change.
