[Slackbuilds-users] Monit killed by restart and config file name issues

I think this has been raised here before, but it seems that the current 
rc.monit file still kills the Monit daemon when doing:

/etc/rc.d/rc.monit restart

The solution seems to be to have a 3 second sleep between stop and start 

And while we are at it, Monit seems to be hardwired to use /etc/monitrc 
config file, instead of /etc/monit.conf. So although it is possible to 
start it with:

monit -c /etc/monit.conf

the config file will have to be passed on the command line every time 
when doing "monit status" - otherwise it doesn't work. Would it be 
possible to have the default config file at /etc/monitrc, so that "monit 
status" just works? I think /etc/monit.conf looks better, but it is a 
pain to type the location of the config file every time you want to get 
the status of the daemon.
