I'm not sure why you need this. There's no fork happening with your 
config, AFAICT.

No idea.

To be honest, I kind of hate upstart. It's really freaking inscrutable and 
the docs suck. I've gotten some info out of it by putting it into debug 
mode and watching /var/log/daemon.log

I really wish Ubuntu would just kill upstart and switch to systemd.

Weird. I don't need this at all for my system.
