MailScanner reload

I have the new cross-platform init script completed. It works great. However, when doing a “service mailscanner reload” the master process retains the status of “starting children” after it has completed starting the children. Normally it would say something like “master sleeping”. This is nothing more than a display thing. I know it sets this status in the main executable /usr/sbin/MailScanner. (You can see where it does in several areas.)

Can someone help track down where the sleeping notice needs to be inserted during a reload?
