Starting Daemons

hello:

I have a need for using cfengine to restart a daemon that will make my 
life so much easier.    Unfortunately when cfengine runs the init script 
as part of the shell commmands the script won't let go of the terminal, or 
doesn't properly daemonize.  The daemon will not accept signals.   I'm not 
sure what exactly the problem is.   This mean my update stops at the 
first host and proceeds no further.

This article seemed to some possible means of correcting this, 

http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-cfe.html?open&l=805,t=grl,p=cfe

but placing 

echo "cfengine-die"
echo 

in the initscript did not seem to help, unless it was intended to go 
somewhere else.   

How have others gotten around this?   Would this be fixed in the next 
release, and might it be worthwhile to upgrade just for that?

Thanks,

Brian Seppanen
