Good catch, it looks like I moved the REPVOLNAME= up too far when
removing the VSGDB dependencies. Normally the 'shift' drop the --kill
argument and after this 'if/else/fi' statement $1 will always contain

That shouldn't be necessary... Unless ofcourse you have bound your
server to a specific IP-address. Hmm, that does create a bit of a
