 Thanks for both of you for the answers. I think I misunderstood the
purpose of --stop and --retry. I thought it does the looping for me, and
I would reinvent the wheel if I do the looping for myself. Matt, I know
--signal, but SIGTERM is quite OK, I just don't need it immediately
delivered. See the timeframe:
- control program is called with the 'stop' argument,
- loop for for example five seconds, and every second check if the
  daemon really exited. If yes, then return.
- if the loop expired, but daemon is still running, _only then_ deliver
  the signal.

Instead I get the signal delivered as soon I invoke ssd, at least it
seems as the daemon does not even reach the first line for printing
'shutting down...'.
