Then don't use exit 0. I'm not a Unix Guru, but it didn't take me that long
to come up with this for /etc/init.d/gdm last time I needed it.

case "$1" in
#       echo -n "Starting $DESC: "
#       start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile /var/run/$NAME.pid --exec $DAEMON
#       echo "$NAME."
        echo -n "Stopping $DESC: "
        start-stop-daemon --stop  --quiet --pidfile /var/run/$NAME.pid
        echo "$NAME."
        #       If the daemon can reload its config files on the fly
        #       for example by sending it SIGHUP, do it here.
        #       If the daemon responds to changes in its config file
        #       directly anyway, make this a do-nothing entry.
        # echo "Reloading $DESC configuration files."
        # start-stop-daemon --stop --signal 1 --quiet --pidfile \
        #       /var/run/$NAME.pid --exec $DAEMON
        #       If the "reload" option is implemented, move the "force-reload"
        #       option to the "reload" entry above. If not, "force-reload" is
        #       just the same as "restart".
        $0 stop
        sleep 1
        $0 really-start
        echo -n "Starting $DESC: "
        start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile /var/run/$NAME.pid --exec $DAEMON
        echo "$NAME."
        # echo "Usage: $N {start|stop|restart|reload|force-reload}" >&2
        echo "Usage: $N {start|stop|restart|force-reload|really-start}" >&2
        exit 1
