netcfg 2.5.4:

If net-auto-wireless is startet and I stop it with /etc/rc.d/net-auto-wireless stop then it failes. (Don't know why, can't see anything in any log). But actually it is stopped.
But when I try so start it again this failes to, beacuse /var/run/daemons/net-auto-wireless was not removed.

Any ideas?
This task depends upon

This works fine for me. Can't say more than that ...

Mh strange. I'll try to debug this more deep when I'm at home.

The only failure cases for stopping net-auto-wireless are:
- No interface is configured (in which case, it shouldn't have started anyway)
- rfkill fails

Do you use rfkill?

This bug is fairly old and a possible candidate for closing. Any updates? Does the problem still persist?

It is, and I still don't know how to reproduce this. That said, the rc.d script for net-auto-wireless is not very robust.
