Re: init spawning multiple cf-execd processes at once

I've added a new line to the /etc/inittab file to monitor the CFEngine
daemon and restart it in case this one dies.
The cf-execd is re-spawned as expected, except the fact that multiple
processes are created at once.
I therefore have about 20+ cf-execd processes running where I only need 1.
Any idea what's causing this and how to solve it?
