zabbix-agent upstart script incorrect daemonization

Bug Description

The upstart init script packaged with zabbix-agent (1:2.0.3+dfsg-1~exp0ubuntu1) doesn't track it's daemonization correctly and leaves a non-functioning init script.

It's using Zabbix-agent(1:2.0.3+dfsg-1~exp0ubuntu1) from raring and upstart(1.5-0ubuntu9) from quantal so there is a chance that the two aren't happy together. I suspect that's not it.

sudo status zabbix-agent
zabbix-agent start/running, process 955

None of the zabbix processes have that pid, /var/run/zabbix/ is 982.

sudo stop zabbix-agent
<hangs forever, expected it to stop>

sudo reload zabbix-agent
reload: No such process

This causes problems for logrotate scripts too.

The bug is valid.
It was introduced with conversion with conversion to upstart job.

I suggest to go back to SysVInit until the issue is fixed

It seems solved in zabbix agent 2.2

Indeed, solved with the version in 14.04. Caused trouble during the upgrade form 13.10 though, of course, because the shutdown did not work correctly. Had to kill it during the upgrade, but that was all. Now it comes up correctly.
