Bug Description

Documentation does not clarify, what is 'task' stanza. I found only this:

-------
This stanza may be used to specify that the job is a task instead. This means that the act of starting the job is not considered to be finished until the job itself has been run and stopped again, but that existing with a zero exit status means the task has completed successfully and will not be respawned.
------

Totally not understood, what author mean in phrase "This means ......has been run and stopped again". Please clarify when and which events generated when job is marked as 'task'. Also did not found that in wiki....
