[Pdns-users] Custom backend quit problem

Hi there,

I've written a custom backend which I'm using with the Pipe backend. It
works perfectly, accepts queries and answers correctly, etc, however for
some reason the processes don't exit cleanly when the server is

For example when I try and stop the server, the init.d script will
hang indefinitely and never kill the backend processes correctly.

Can anyone give me any clues as to why this might happen? Is there a quit
command (I'm already exiting on "QUIT" or empty line from stdin) that the
pipe backend sends? Or maybe this is a bug?

I am running the Ubuntu 10.10 bundled 2.9.22-5 version.
