Hi there,

after a software upgrade (system and zope/plone) we have a strange problem.
we have an old site that runs under plone 2.1
python 2.3.5

when I start it in the foreground with bin/zopectl fg everything works fine.
if I however start it with bin/zopectl start

bin/zopectl status shows after some seconds

zope at corinna:~> instances/kanneweb3/bin/zopectl start
daemon process started, pid=26697

zope at corinna:~> instances/kanneweb3/bin/zopectl status
daemon manager running; daemon process not running
zope at corinna:~>

I see no entries in the logs, so I have no idea where to look.

for any hints how the caus of this problem, I would be gratefull
