True, I shouldn't assume it behaves as documented right now. But the 
operlay has code to start and stop the server...

I agree that it may be interesting to know what the difference is on a 
code-level. I do not have the spare cycles right now to find the 
corresponding original code and compare it against the -overlay version 
(and to try to understand a programming language I have no clue about).
