I think what you did makes perfect sense but on the other hand shouldn't the
reboot process stop the services in the right order in the first place?
Maybe there is a timeout issue or they don't necessarily follow the right

Do you let the boot system to start the services for you in the right order
or you actually have to do it manually?
