It already has been "backed out" 10 hours ago. IMHO rwatson is right and
it's a bad idea to immediatly background it on some machines. The users
whi like to background it can set it in their rc.conf.

If there was no link on the interface you had to wait ~2 mins and tons
of requests have been sent to nowhere. Never noticed ? I wait now a
max of 2 x polling time (10 seconds).
