Just verified it. It is actually not a ucd-snmp only related problem but seems
to happen for any initscript you start.

A 'workaround' for now is to use "&" at the end of the command to put it in the
background. That will work, but it really should be fixed in the initscripts
somewhere (i guess somewhere in the functions, but thats only a guess).

Reassigning to initscripts.

Read ya, Phil
