Oy.  Good catch.  I just tried it and yes, it does work.

Yeah.  Oddly enough, it indicates no errors or anything else going wrong.

I tried to start it up again straight from the command line, by invoking

# ./S51jrun start

It's working... kind of.  Maybe one try out of ten, I get the page I'm
looking for; most of the time I get an error message telling me that the

One thing that I noticed (probably unrelated to this issue) is that
S51jrun is a script in this directory, and not a link to a script in
init.d.  I thought that the best practice was to write all of your scripts
in init.d and then link to them from the other rcX directories as
