Copyover & autorun

From: Chris Jacobson (
Date: 03/04/99

I've noticed with the copyover snippet that Autorun will think the MUD
died and will keep trying to restart it.  Even with the lines:

  echo "autorun starting game $DATE" >> syslog
  echo "running bin/circle $FLAGS $PORT" >> syslog

  bin/circle $FLAGS $PORT >> syslog 2>&1

#This should catch it...
  while ( /usr/sbin/fuser bin/circle ) do
    sleep 60

it still doesn't catch and keeps trying to execute the MUD, causing log
files to get pushed out of date.

Does anyone know of a way to deal with this?
