Thanks for your comment. I will have a look at the issues in the next few days.

Yes it does work fine. I use it since a few months. The binary that is shown with top is ruby18 and RUBY_NAME is exactly that.

Oh did not know that the flags are automatically append to command_args. I will check and remove this then.

Yes they are but the user should have no reason to change user and group so this could be moved to command_args.

That is a bigger disussion because redmine is designed to work completely inside of his home directory and that includes scripts, pidfiles, tmp and everything else. I have already looked at spliting that up but decided against it because it would be a bad hack.

Did not know that either. When thinking about that issues it would have been good to have a few good examples or a documentation. Does that probably already exist and i just haven't found it?

Thanks for your comments and i will also have a look at my other startscripts if they have the same problems.
