'too quick "zmailer smtp" does not kill previous server'


  It seems my previous reply was in error.
I am able to repeat the problem, by following means:

# $MAILBIN/zmailer smtp; $MAILBIN/zmailer smtp

That is, if the restart of smtp server is QUICK, timing
margin seems to be a few seconds, then the old process is
left behind.

Same thing is propably true with router and scheduler as well.

However I believe this is an old feature, which has not
(yet) gotten deeper attention.

To certain extent problems reported at  nl.linux.net  were
of same type as this one -- old versions of servers are left
behind to confuse admin, and wreack havock..
