init: failed exec() and "expect" cause hang or missing pid
Binary package hint: upstart
Trying to start the attached sample upstart job results in a status of 'started/running', but with no PID.
Ran into this in the gssd job, which on my system unavoidably races the mounting of /usr since NFS mounts will be attempted in parallel to local filesystem mounts, and rpc.gssd sits on /usr. Will work around this in the gssd job (after reviewing, I don't see any reason to have a 'script' here instead of exec'ing directly, which fixes the problem that upstart doesn't see the exec() failure).
