Subject Re: issues with configuration updates and clean shutdowns
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2014 14:24:27 GMT

I didn't get any response at all to this, so let me ask more generally:
does automatic reload upon config change generally work?  Does
sending a signal for shutdown or reload generally work?  Is this just a
symptom of our configuration?
