@Avery, I've put up a little patch for the initscript that removes all
sleeps and wait for the PID file to vanish before considering the stop
action completed. Since it now uses start-stop-daemon it should be a
little bit clever.

It works well with my 4 VPNs here but would appreciate if you could give
it a try and provide some feedback here.

** Patch added: "Use start-stop-daemon --retry instead of kill."
