Description Karl Berry 1999-04-03 12:58:21 UTC
The /etc/rc.d/init.d/amd file considers reload and restart
the same, merely sending a HUP signal.  I suggest that
restart actually kill and start a new process.  This
distinction is (very) useful and other rc files make it.

fixed in am-utils-6.0-3 and later.
