Subject: (7.55) Why are multiple innwatch's running?

From: Jim Dutton <jimd@dutton4.it.siu.edu>

Currently, "nobody" seems to verify whether an innwatch task is already
executing before innwatch is started up in rc.news. Also, when innd is
terminated via ctlinnd shutdown, innwatch is not affected (eg; it is
left running).

Since rc.news always starts an innwatch task, if innd is shutdown for
maintenance, it is necessary to remember to ALSO kill the innwatch task
and its attendant "sleeper" task, thus ensuring that there is no innwatch
running when rc.news is executed to restart innd (assuming that this is
how innd is restarted, of course).
