Ah! I see (pause) not. I've read the git logs and a diff to 2.4.8 but failed to
see how the issue (the restart_by_peers and the one I reported) was solved.
I would be glad if you could give a little hint so that I can gain some
enlightment. ;)

Was the 'restart_by_peer' option problemtatic or developing a fix? I see
that the 2.5 tree provides only the 'restart' option.
