[Backgroundrb-devel] trouble stopping backgroundrb

Hi folks -

I'm having trouble getting backgroundrb to stop after one of the
packet_worker_r processes dies.

If backgroundrb is running properly,
"/path/to/application/script/backgroundrb stop" works fine, but often
one of the packet_worker_r processes dies, and the stop command no
longer works after that (it runs, but it does not stop the processes,
and so then start doesn't work).

The only thing that seems to work at that point is to manually kill
the processes that are still running, and then the start works, but
that is going to make restarting via monit a lot less clean.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

I'm using github version of backgroundrb, and packet 0.1.13 running on ubuntu.
