I often install .debs from a Zip disk. When I come to umount the Zip disk,
it's often busy. At this point I hunt around, restarting daemons and
programs until I hit the one which caused the problem.
Most of these programs have been started via "start-stop-daemon". Since I
am in /zip/debs when installing the program, guess where the process gets
attached to. Doing a "cd /" at the beginning of start-stop-daemon should
fix this AFAIK.
