Hi all, 

I've installed this 4.0.0-alpha2 Recursor versiĆ³n and I'm having some errors stopping or restarting the service.

The fact is when I try to stop the service, the service keeps running. When I restart the service, it cannot be restarted because it cannot be stopped.
Restart Exception: Resolver binding to server socket on port 8053 for xx.xx.xx.xx: Address already in use

The only way to stop it is killing the process.

To add some information, I saw two files on root folder, maybe is wrong place for they
   0 srwxr-xr-x   1 root pdns    0 Apr 27 16:35 pdns_recursor.controlsocket
4.0K -rw-r--r--   1 root pdns    5 Apr 27 16:35 pdns_recursor.pid

The only way I found to solve this issue is disabling the "chroot=./" setting.

As always I wrote here, can be my own problem but, I report this just in case.

Thank a lot, Ale.
