Description omega 1999-06-12 14:14:06 EDT
The restart portion of the nfs rc script doesn't work, since
it tries to restart by HUPing all the daemons.  On all my
machines doing so will completely kill mountd, quotad, and
statd.  The correct way to deal with this is for the restart
code to look like:

$0 stop
$0 start

Fixed (as suggested) in knfsd-1.3.3b-2. Thanks for the report.
