I think something is wrong. :(

For my TDaemon descendant I assigned the following events:

When I type "./daemon -r &"
The following handlers are executed:
1. OnStart
2. OnExecute

When I type "kill -TERM daemon_pid"
The following handler is executed
1. OnDestroy

I am also a bit confused by the wiki. According to the wiki Start and 
stop are triggered under linux but shutdown is not. The 'Taming the 
daemon' article does not specify which of these 3 are called under linux.

As I mentioned earlier, I use FPC 2.2.4. Could that be the problem?
