No. That's a hideous bug. /etc/init.d/anything stop MUST stop the service
at all costs, even if it has to kill -9 the daemon.
BTW, anyone using start-stop-daemon -exec for *stop* fix your scripts
immediately. NEVER USE -exec FOR STOP. If the binary was prelinked, or
upgraded, or changed in any way since it was started, -exec will cause it
not to be stopped.
