Subject: [gentoo-dev] init.d problem

Hi folks,

maybe I've found a problem in the init.d stuff:

It seems that /var/lib/init.d/started/* is blindly trusted, 
instead of actually checking if some service is running.

For example, ntpd cannot be restarted via its init.d script
if it died for some reason - /var/lib/init.d/started/ntpd 
has to be removed manually.


I've filed a bug for it:
