/bin/service --down hangs if there is no services running

From a fresh install of the imply.io druid distribution (version 2.6.11) if I issue the command:

/bin/service --down

when no services are running it just hangs forever.

This makes my automated installs that attempt to do a:

stop existing services

install druid

start new services

just fail. :frowning:

Also, when doing things like:

start_services query

Is there a way to make them run in daemon mode? These also hang my automated installs since it runs in the foreground by default attached to the current process.

Ideally want it started in the background disowned from the shell process that spawned it.

I may just put the Druid supervisor under runit supervision to solve these problems, but seems redundant.
