supervisor init script restart fails

supervisor (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Package: supervisor 3.0a8-1.1
Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Release: 12.04

I expected to call /etc/init.d/supervisor restart and see evidence of it restarting in the log.
There was no evidence in the log, when I did /etc/initd/supervisor stop then /etc/initd/supervisor start it did show evidence in the log for supervisor that it had restarted.

The init.d script for supervisor fails to restart, the restart case calls stop and start on start-stop-daemon but the stop has incorrect parameters. Below is the fixed code (no --exec parameter in the stop part)

    echo -n "Restarting $DESC: "
    start-stop-daemon --stop --pidfile \
    [ -n "$DODTIME" ] && sleep $DODTIME
    start-stop-daemon --start --pidfile \
        $PIDFILE --exec $DAEMON -- $DAEMON_OPTS
    echo "$NAME."
