Thanks for the clarification.

I am sorry your debugging was distracted by bug#900174 - I have now 
better understood that one and _that_ bug should be fixed now with released a moment ago.

I disagree that bypassing init scripts and using some parts of them in 
custom ways should be better documented: It _is_ already documented 
inside those scripts you tried to use, and the way you use them is very 
much _unsupported_ ways of using them.

I therefore flag this as wontfix.

Nevertheless I apprecicate your helping out here: It was instrumental in 
pushing forward a fix for bug#900174!  Hope you will continue to report 
bugs against uwsgi - there are no doubt more to be found :-)

 - Jonas
