Couldn't you just do something like this?

while ! cfagent --define __CLASS__ --define __NAME__ --file 
/var/cfengine/inputs/cfsetup.conf; do
    echo cfagent failed

Why put cfagent in the background, just to kill it later? Wouldn't this
potentially zap your cfagent before it was done every time, creating an
infinite loop? It would probably happen after some time, when you start
doing something that takes a long time on the initial run.
