    I found out that the /etc/init.d/unity-accelerator script leaks processes when you start it repeatedly by accident.

    Code (csharp):

    The "restart" reature is also not robust, probably if the process doesn't near-immediately terminate, it will open another process, which then fails to bind to the appropriate ip and port. You then end up with 3 processes, one of these is as "half" unity-accelerator that interferes with the others.

    And as a feedback, I don't think the process should run as root. (that can be circumvented by not installing it as root, but since it has distinct differences in behaviour when doing so, I think this is an intended mode of installation - it should probably create or ask an user/group though)

    Yep, that's a bug and we've opened a ticket to fix it internally as [COL-1355]. We are planning on allowing the installation to run as a non-root user as well (this is only required on Linux systems) which can be tracked as [COL-964]. If you watch our release notes thread for these, they'll eventually show up as fixed.
