Well, the kolabsrv script doesn't ever finish because the kolabd script from perl-kolab doesnt' complete when called the way it is in kolabsrv
It only completes when called like kolabd >& /dev/null &
otherwise it hangs at the three backend lines in the eval section.

But imap and apache will (re-)start, so nothing bad will happen on RUNOCHANGE
This is probably why I haven't gotten any bugreports on Kolab from the Mandriva users.
