Yes, I did mean broken.   All programs that I know of can start and stop
repeatedly, including routing protocol daemons, mail daemons,
filesystems, and really everything else.  It seems like an obvious
requirement for normal operation.

I can certainly see that this might have been a bit tricky, and don't
fault people for putting it last, but I really don't see how it makes
sense as a design.

Do you understand why this is so hard to fix?  Generally kernel
interfaces deallocate on close and can be reopened.
