Hmmm OK, try reading the init script and see what it calls. If it's
something like "/usr/bin/dansgardian -d" or similar, read the manpage
on dansgardian and see whether there are any switches to force it to
run in non-daemonised mode... and run it like that. If it's still not
working, then contact the author's D-List and see whether they've got
any suggestions. Sorry I can't be more help :(
