The --background parameter to start-stop-daemon appear to work, and
seem to be the fastest way to solve this problem, so I propose to do
it that way.  Do you see any problem with this?  I've asked the
original reported to test it.

Hopefully, shishid in 0.0.24 will support a --nofork parameter, and I
can change the default to fork into the background.

I am sorry for the slow response to this, I have been on vacation.
