Description Ion Badulescu 1999-05-05 06:49:00 EDT
It is possible to have multiple sendmail's running (to run
the queue, started by clients to send mail, etc). Because
the daemon function checks for an existing process with the
same name, it will fail to start a new sendmail daemon.

The bug appears very often on a busy mail server.
Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-29 11:45:59 EDT
The start function is intended to be used after a stop has been issued
or on a clean bootup.
