 This is the only installed port with a startup item on my system which has
 this behavior.[[BR]]
 There is a difference with ports like denyhosts or rsync, which also use a
 startup item that only gets loaded after the user issues the load
 Those two ports use a daemondo wrapper along with a launchd.plist and this
 works as the creation message of the launch control script states at
 Except for the difference in using a daemondo support script I'm unable to
 come up with a reason why this is happening.
