Additional info on reproducing the problem: - just running 'base-config new' without configuring exim does not reproduce the problem; - running 'base-config' without 'new' and configuring exim (the config questions are asked) does not reproduce the problem; - after stopping exim with the long pause, subsequent starts/restarts/stops are completely normal. Copy of config attached.

Adding those settings makes no difference at all. > You could als tcpdump or ethereal the network traffic between your > system and the name servers to see which queries your system sends out. There is absolutely no traffic from/to the system during the pause. The same is true for a normal stop (without the pause). (So much for the ipv6 theory ;-) To your other questions. - The pid matches. - It is indeed the --retry timeout of s-s-d. After setting that to 10, the pause was reduced to exactly 10 seconds (which means my guestimate of the original pause was amazingly accurate as well ;-) A timed strace of s-s-d with the 10 second retry setting is attached. I have checked that the exim deamon really is still running during the retry timeout and that it is gone on completion.
