Is this your 'clean state' caveat above? Yes it is. I think scripts that start complex services should always make sure to check the state first. Ideally, a run script (as we name them in the process supervision world) should be idempotent in all cases. I realize it's not always easy to achieve, but I believe it is the goal to aim for. -- Laurent
