This patch is based on -130.el5 and can fix this problem.
This isn't actually a bug:
As per the LSB script, running start on a started service is considered a
success action. The way we get there in the script however is a bit dubious, so
I've cleaned that up in -131.el5, which now also reports that the service is
already running, in addition to reporting a successful start.
Fix confirmed with kexec-tools-1.101-164.el5.
