I have now looked at the code (also, patch is applied). I think it probably is
not sufficient to return an exit state. There are some other (exotic)
conditions that can stop startup, like not being able to create a queue (for
whatever wild reason). In those cases, messages are emitted to stderr, too. So
it would probably make more sense to keep stderr open after the fork and
continue to emit messages to there.

What do you say?
