denyhosts activated twice?

I installed and activated denyhosts from ports, but it is running twice and logging twice to the log file.

I looked in /opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.denyhosts but that contains only two files, the plist and the .wrapper, and the plist just starts the wrapper.

I tried to use the wrapper to stop denyhosts:

# ./denyhosts.wrapper stop
sent DenyHosts SIGTERM
# psa denyhosts

root      3276   0.0  0.0  2454948   1076   ??

As you can see, one of the processes was left untouched. If I manually kill the extra process it doesn't seem to come back, but I can't do that every time.

I suppose I could just completely uninstall denyhosts and redo it from start, but that doesn't seem like the ideal solution.

People who would not believe a High Priest if he said the sky was blue,
and was able to produce signed affidavits to this effect from his
white-haired old mother and three Vestal virgins, would trust just about
anything whispered darkly behind their hand by a complete stranger.
