The above message contained the following:

> Why is the "sync" in the ldmadmin stop script before the server goes

The sync(1) is there because we discovered years ago that it decreased
the time it took the LDM system to stop.  It could be that it no longer
works that way on some modern systems.  Please feel free to move it
around or comment it out and let us know what you discover.

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
