I've just been looking at this again as this is still causing confusion. I've been looking at the svcs.cpp part of the BBWin code and while I'm not a programmer, I noticed that in 2 places the word "stopped" is actually spelt "stoppped". It's just a feeling but it might be that it is causing the false status to be reported.
