Hi Patrick, just tested your patch with monit 4.4, it works fine,
thanks for this I can now get ride of my dodgy trick. However if you
use Heartbeat in the way it says in the docs (i.e. Monit running in
inittab and monitoring Heartbeat daemon) you will find that stopping
Heartbeat doesn't reset the timeout flag for the service, since monit
hasn't been restarted.
