It stops and immediately starts, all in the same second.
I am running it with the patch I sent to discussion without any trouble.
I tried the stop-start in a bash script with variable sleep/usleep for
20 times. No trouble at all.

initscripts on Fedora Core/RedHat do not wait for anything.

Hey, I have replaced sysklogd with syslog-ng, updated ntp to make
collectd and me happy. Do you mean that I should move to Debian? :)
