Subject: start script edited 

The existing elog restart script was running the kill process in the background using the '&' symbol before starting new elog process. This is a BAD idea since there's no way to make sure that the background process has actually worked before the new one tries to start.

That's why you sometimes had to run the script twice. I've removed all of the background "cleverness" so now it will take ~2s more for the script to run - however, it now actually works. We may also upgrade from v2.7.5 to 2.8 today.
